    You really should read a bit about the case I cited.

    Not to mention that most moslems dont make all five prayer times on Friday, let alone other days of the week.

    Unless the mosque has an espescially devout congregation, it is going to be a mix of active and the "easter and christmas", "buried and married" types- just like many churches are. In short, the odds of there being a prayer rush five times daily are very slim.

    I truly sympathize with these moslems. I went through the same experience with a church in California. Wealthy liberals used every possible pretense not to give a building permit (environmental "impacts" - of course nearby homes were totally green, traffic flow "problems", "rushes" etc.)

    Like the moslems, our first amendment rights got buried under a blizzard of paper for years.

As with Christianity there are many sects within Islam, ranging from the extremists of al Qaeda and ISIL to the far more moderate Nizari Ismaili sect led by the Aga Khan. It is the extremists and their atrocities who get all the publicity but the vast majority of Muslims are like the vast majority of Christians.

    A bit off topic but an illustration of the political scene in Kennesaw Georgia is the town ordinance that was passed a few years ago: Georgia Town's New Law Says You Must Have a Gun - ABC News
    These others have a bad track record all the way back to the creation of this country and beyond. If the good citizens feel safer not having a mosque in their community
    and everyone owning a gun, power to them.

    You need to understand that the constitution only restricts the activities of the federal government. State and local constitutions would do the same for state and local governments. You may want to read those constitutions to determine whether or not the people in Kennesaw are doing something constitutional. Personally I have no idea. I just know that the U.S. constitution has nothing to do with the issue.

    Not correct. This is how you wish it was, not how it is.

    Additionally, this action violates the Georgia State Constitution as well.

    I disagree, a lot, with that statement.
