LOWER MANHATTAN — Michael Moore says he has raised over $50,000 for Park51, the mosque and community center near Ground Zero.
Moore, a liberal director and author, wrote a blog post on Saturday, the ninth anniversary of 9/11, urging supporters of the Park51 project to donate whatever they could. He promised to match up to $10,000.
Less than 48 hours later, five times that amount had poured in as thousands of people from around the country heeded Moore’s call, he said.
Well, fuck yeah man. I’d give money, but I’m an atheist and can’t really be bothered, but just the same, this is more about free speech than religious bullshittery.
