Weigh in on Ground Zero Mosque

From Executive Producer Jeni Cook:

A plan to build a mosque near Ground Zero in the 9/11 attacks - sacred ground for many Americans - is being met with outrage.

At issue: A 19th-century building and whether it can be designated a landmark. If it is designated a landmark, the original building will remain. If not, American Muslim groups will move ahead with plans to build an inter-faith community center and mosque.

A vote is slated for this morning on whether the building will be granted landmark status.

We want to hear from you on this issue. Where do you stand?

Leave us a comment. We’ll share some of them in the CNN Newsroom, 11am ET — 1pm ET.
