    Kennesaw City Council rejects mosque proposal

    KENNESAW, Ga. -- There will be no mosque in Kennesaw. At least not right away. The Kennesaw City Council voted on Monday to reject the request of a group of Muslims seeking to establish a worship center in the city.

    Anti-Islamic demonstrators outside of Kennesaw City Hall made it clear that they believe an Islamic worship center is not welcome in Kennesaw.

    The local Islamic group wanting to rent the retail space for their worship center agreed to every limitation that the Kennesaw city attorney wanted to impose, including a two-year only lease, no more than 80 worshipers allowed at a time and no more than 40 parking spaces could be used at a time.
    They agree to every legal restriction the city attorney could come up with but their application was still rejected.

    I so love the way "government spends too much of our money!" types seem to be willing to spend lots of money fighting losing causes based on religious and social beliefs.

    The demonstrators are hoping that the city will continue to fight the Muslims' efforts to hold worship services in Kennesaw.
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”

    As they have found in other countries, some of these mosques are nothing but breeding ground for terrorists.

    If the people thought that was a possiblity, why let them in?

    Which is exactly why Egypt should ban Christian churches. Christianity is a breeding ground for social degenerates. If the Egyptian people thought it was a possibility, why let those Christians in? **** religious freedom.

    Because you need more than hysterics and an overactive imagination to legitimately infringe upon the rights of others.

    Breeding and recruiting terrorists is far from a religious freedom.

    Sorry the usual crowd here doesn't comprehend the difference.

    Do you have any proof that this mosque would be used for it?

    Kennesaw Georgia is where the movie " Deliverance " was filmed.

    This is an infringement on religious freedom. I don't see a rational reason why their request should be denied given the information presented.
