Carry out your social experiments in your own back yard. Or move to Kennesaw and work on your neighborhood. Kennesaw is one of the biggest pro gun towns in the south. They have an ordinance that requires every household to have and maintain a firearm. Perhaps they were considering the safety of the Muslims in question.
    I'd be very surprised if they were doing it for the Muslims' "own good."

    Kennesaw is a suburb of Atlanta, these aren't Deliverance-country types. Being in Cobb County, I'm guessing they haven't been sheltered from crime, either.

    I support an equality standard, but it certainly isn't theoretical. Last time I checked, it was the law...

    And, seeing as my parents live in Cumming...right up the road... I certainly care about what happens in their neck of the woods.

    Good that you know that. Many of the posters here think that all of Georgia is a backwoods trailer park full of civil war reenacters with mullets. As for laws, well our current President has taught us that laws we don't like won't be enforced. Hey, he set the precedent. Don't like a law? Ignore it until your decision gets overturned in court.

    Cumming looks like any suburban area in American complete with retail shopping as far as the eye can see. They have a Rosatl's Pizza there where we can finally get real Chicago food. It is a good hour away from our rural mountain community. But if you have spent enough time here you may understand how it could very well be for their own good. The art of deception thru semantics is largely lost here. Sugar coated bull**** is a northern dish imported from california.

    A bit unusual, but atheist's experiences vary depending on where they lived, how out they were, and when they were an atheist.

It just so happens there are so many churches and schools that there is literally no physical location to legally open a bar. Perhaps Kennesaw has an ordinance that will not allow a place of worship within a perdetermined distance to a gun store or range and they are just all out of space.
    The OP said that the Muslim group agreed to comply with all the conditions imposed by the City Attorney.

    We recently got to go to Little Five Points.Now THAT place has a culture of it's own. If you like people watching it's a fun day trip. Some good food there too. It's got the hippy feel of Asheville NC turned up to eleven.

It's pretty clear that the radical side of Islam has cast doubt on the true intent of the belief system, especially considering the underwhelming need of the rest of the Muslim community to disagree with it.
    Radical Christians exist. So should I use their example to "cast doubt" on the rest of Christians?

    Re: Kennesaw City Council rejects mosque proposal

    The attorney for the Muslim group, Doug Dillard, said they may sue the city in federal court. He said that in similar fights across Metro Atlanta, he has reached out-of-court settlements after suing the local governments. The cases never went to trial; the two sides ultimately reached a compromise.
    Ah,now it makes sense. Religious trolling for profit. How nice.

    Trolling for religious freedom. Terrible.

    Whatever flips your switch. It doesn't much matter to me how you treat Christians.
