Our Lady Help of Mahometans?

Probably not. But it isn't Our Lady Help of Christians Church any more either. This old ethnic Polish church in Detroit has been sold to the Mahometans to become a mosque.

[ADDENDUM: A note in my inbox on 10/30 reminds me that: "It was 435 years ago, with the whole of Christendom under siege from the (Muslim) Ottoman Turks, that a Rosary Crusade was launched and Our Blessed Lady's all-powerful intercession was sought, under the title 'Help of Christians'". A symbolic reversal of Lepanto it seems.]
