Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) came out in support
of the proposed Cordoba House Islamic community center two blocks from Ground Zero yesterday, saying that he's "kind of proud that they're sticking to their guns and saying this is where they would want to worship."
Rangel joins a few other New York Democrats in favor of the controversial plans
, as well as President Obama who recently
came out in support of the Cordoba House as well.
