(Studio: Anderson Cooper) A new commercial about the New York City mosque controversy from North Carolina Congressional candidate Renee Ellmers shown; a response from opponent Representative Bob Etheridge's spokesman quoted.
(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Earlier interview held with Ellmers about her view of the mosque and Islam. [ELLMERS - says she is not intending to say all Muslims are terrorists, but Muslim terrorists attacked us; argues about Etheridge's stand on the mosque and about "victory mosques" in past history; states we are fighting radical Muslims in Afghanistan and she is running for a district in North Carolina.]
(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with religious scholar Bruce Feiler about the history of religious conquest. [FEILER - says they are not called "victory mosques," that conquering religions build churches, that there are 600,000 Muslims in and around New York City; states the deeper question is: should Muslims be treated differently.]
- Cooper, Anderson
