    Last Tuesday, Florida Circuit Judge Richard Nielsen defended his decision to uphold a binding arbitration agreement, based upon Sharia Law, between ex-trustees of a local Mosque who claim to have been unfairly removed by the current leadership of that Mosque. The Islamic arbitration ruled in favor of the ex-trustees. The current leadership appealed, which is why the matter ended up before Judge Neilson:
    So, what you're saying is that the U.S. Judge who abided by the settlment as agreed upon by the abritrator who used the tenants of the religion Cain mistrusts to resolve what amounts to an internal squabble between members of said religion should not have upheld the ruling by the arbitrator?

    Sorry, but I fail to follow your logic.

    First off, it wasn't the judge who made the settlement agreement outright. He just upheld the ruling the arbitrator already made towhich both parties in dispute apparently agreed to at one point.

    Second, a arbitrator acting as a liason to negotiate a peaceful disbute doesn't have an impact on nor chances our social laws. The example you've provided is an internal matter and has nothing to do with how Sharia Law would impact American religious, social or moral culture.

    Cain obviously does not support the First Amendment of the Unites States Constitution. Sad.

    Not saying that is what any particular Mosque is doing. In fact, I usually err on the side of thinking Cain's type of outrage is ignorant and borderline racist. Just saying.
    According to the courts, Westboro is not abusing the first amendment. I'm not defending them. I abhor those racist, bigoted creeps, but it is what it is. So, if those scum are allowed to picket funerals with despicable signs and rhetoric, why should Muslims be held to a different standard? The vast majority of Muslims are peaceful, God-loving people. Why should anybody be punished for the actions of a few? I realize that you're not advocating Muslims being held to different standards, but even playing devil's advocate to this nonsense is, in my opinion, reproachable.

    and without evidence that a specific religious congregation being organized will indeed espouse racism, hatred, and bigotry, we have NO RIGHT to assume so just cause' they are Muslim.

    This is America. We believe in religious freedom. Don't like it? Try Iran, North Korea, or China.

    Well of course you do.

    You advocate that we should have a modern day crusade against Muslims to satisfy our own blood lust.

    Colour me shocked you support such rhetoric

    Re: Cain: Tenn. Mosque Infringes on Religious Freedom

    Living in Nashville, I really don't care if this mosque gets put up. It would be a travesty to religious freedom if it's not allowed to go up. The court has already ruled that it's legal for them to do this.
