    Mosque approved in 5-0 Kennesaw City Council vote

    Apparently the city council members actually listened to the town attorney. They'v saved their tax payers a few dollars.

    Mosque approved in 5-0 Kennesaw City Council vote

    KENNESAW — With a unanimous 5-0 vote Monday, the Kennesaw City Council approved a permit allowing an Islamic prayer center to open in a retail center, reversing its decision earlier this month to deny the request.

    Kashif Islam said he was happy he was given the freedom to practice his religion in the retail center and that the vote ended peacefully.

    “This is not life and death. We’ve been living in this neighborhood for 15 years. Have you ever seen us getting into trouble? No,” Kashif Islam said.
    There are some 'lovely' comments with the article and some that are far more rational.
    “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.”

    I had never read of this group but they seemed to be the primary protesters outside the city council meeting

    Good god some people are just flat out idiots. “They get a bunch of people in an area, and then they institute Sharia law, and then they beat their wives, et cetera, et cetera. I don’t want to go into all the other terrible things they do.... This is going to start happening all over the state."

    I doubt any American Muslims would try to pull that sharia ****, this isn't England.

    I wish the ignorants who go on about sharia law would just shut up and take a civics class. Sharia law can never take hold in the United States without overthrowing the Constitution.

    Makes sense, the group prides itself as defenders of the Constitution!! Except for when it isn't convenient for them and their kind...
