Congregation celebrates groundbreaking of new mosque

From Texas-

Rev. Stephen Carson, of St. Francis Episcopal Church, said he was compelled to attend Saturday's ceremony not only by his faith but also by his humanity.

"There is a lot of ill will for the religion right now," he said. "I would like for them to at least see that not everyone feels that way."

The demonstrations of support by Carson and other Victoria residents was enormously encouraging for many mosque members, Ajrami said.

Ajrami said he is not passing judgment on the person who set the mosque on fire, but he did condemn the act as evil.

Although Victoria resident Marq Vincent Perez is not charged with a crime stemming from the arson, federal investigators have testified that he set the fire. A federal grand jury is currently investigating whether he had a role in the fire, according to court documents.
