Support the Midland Beach Convent Sale sign now

We, the undersigned, people of conscience and faith, urge you to uphold the values of religious freedom, peace and justice our country is built upon, as inscribed in the Constitution, and guaranteed to each and every American.

In May of 2010, the Muslim American Society (MAS) signed a contract to purchase an empty convent from Saint Margaret Marys Catholic Church on Staten Island, to use as a Mosque (house of worship) for the growing Muslim population in the borough.

Some people in Midland Beach, Staten Island and others were subjected to a bigoted and hateful misinformation campaign, orchestrated by known anti-Muslim groups, resulting in opposition to the sale by some, and the Churchs pastor was forced to withdraw his support for the sale.

Muslims are now forced to struggle for their right to freedom of worship, and the freedom to organize places of worship that should be guaranteed to everyone under the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America.

We therefore call upon you to demonstrate your commitment to upholding these values by speaking up now against bigotry and racism, and by asking those involved to maintain the contract of the sale of the convent in Staten Island. We ask you to be one of the "Better Angels" of respect and solidarity, not only in Staten Island, but also everywhere in America.
