The Spanish Deconquista

I was surfing Facebook and found the following article about the Spanish Left’s attempt to change the historic mosque-cathedral of Córdoba, which is currently used as a church, into a worship place for both Muslims and Christians (or secretly, a solely Muslim place). The history behind the place is that it was originally a 7th century church then was converted to a mosque during the Muslim Invasion and then converted back in the Reconquista. This is actually a very beautiful place, and I have actually been there–last summer I was in Spain with some classmates, but to not allow this place to be what it originally was and change what it now is by taking away its Christian history is absolutely wrong. Enjoy!
