    From what I know it's rarely broadcast in American Mosques and we don't know if this one was planning on having it.

    I do hear the church bells from the 2 Catholic churches in my area multiples times a day though. I know it's not the same but they still ring loudly and really early.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

The fear of breeding terrorists isn't rational, you can't deny someone of their rights based on fear of what they might do without any evidence.
    I posted an example of why it's quite rational to assume they are using mosques for such.

    I find it shocking that people here who voted for Barack H. Obama are making themselves out to be champions of the First Amendment. Or any of the Constitution for that matter. That's real laugher.

    That's been my experience out West, that they don't broadcast the call for prayer. Re-read my original post, I was citing that as the only possible valid reason for denial.

    The churches who do that bother me too, and in most neighborhoods around here have stopped the practice. But it's only one day a week.

    Well it seems that you're kind of on Obama's level when it comes to respecting the Constitution, given your arguments.

    No, that's not rational. Presumption of guilt based on religious identification is in direct opposition to everything this country was founded on.

    Says the guy literally arguing an entire religion has no religious freedom because of hypothetical crimes.

    The churches around here bang on their bells all the god damned time. So can we get rid of all the Christian churches too? Or is this just against Muslims?
