So says Fox Nation, based on reporting by the Wall Street Journal.

Religious leaders are calling on Mayor Michael Bloomberg to reverse course and offer clergy a role in the ceremony commemorating the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.

Rudy Washington, a deputy mayor in former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s administration, said he’s outraged. Mr. Washington organized an interfaith ceremony at Yankee Stadium shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

“This is America, and to have a memorial service where there’s no prayer, this appears to be insanity to me,” said Mr. Washington, who has suffered severe medical problems connected to the time he spent at Ground Zero.

Fox Nation pairs that story with this flashback, in which Bloomberg goes to bat for the Ground Zero Mosque on religious freedom grounds.

What if the majority of New Yorkers, or the majority of Americans, want clergy at the 9-11 ceremonies? If asked, I suspect that they do.
