    So "radical Islamists" are trying to build a mosque in Kennesaw?

    Now that is a prime example of how you misrepresent others...

    Well, the thread's about the mosque in Kennesaw, and the last several pages have been you and Grant prattling on about our enemy. I somehow made the mistake of thinking we were actually still on topic.

    Did it occur to you that I knew who he was talking about and was trying to make a point?

    I understand your mistake, you make them often...See, Grant and I were discussing questions asked by Declan among others, and that took the conversation where it went...See that is how conversations often go...Now, that I cleared that up for you, just stop misrepresenting me in the future, and we will be just fine....Thanks.

    There we go! Unfortunately, that's neither who I was talking about nor the subject of this thread. I'm as hostile to Islamism as anyone, and I'm critical of Islam (yes, it does have some flaws that other religions do not), yet I have nothing against Muslims in general.

    Seems to be a fundamental departure from the Constitution. Government should have nothing to say about the establishment of a building of worship.

    Nor do I, however, since the counsel in Kenesaw was rejecting the request at the time based on at least in part concern of radicalism taking root in their community, as it has in others in America, then yes it was a part of the subject of this thread. However, there is another thread where the counsel has approved the request, why it needed a separate thread is beyond me, but none the less...The matter is settled.

    Why would it be any different than any other building permit? If the project is big enough, the counsel has to approve it...Worship, or not.
