Mosque Opponents File Federal Motion to Stop Islamic Center of Murfreesboro


Mosque opponents file federal motion to stop Islamic Center of Murfreesboro

Opponents of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro filed a motion in federal court Monday claiming that U.S. District Judge Todd Campbell accepted “false allegations” in affirming that the controversial mosque can continue its opening process.

Attorney Joe Brandon, who has represented mosque opponents in the past, said he was vexed that federal courts intervened in a local case.

Brandon said the only way to properly conclude the dispute is to provide the public with adequate notice about the mosque, making mosque advocates restart the approval process.

The motion also questioned whether Islam qualified as a legitimate religion.

Brandon requested a hearing for the injunction sought.

    BuddhaShrink, “absurd” is what redneck America does best. There are a good number of people there that try their best to pretend that the last 150 years never happened… until they get behind the wheel of their car and slip their iPod earbuds in.

    The idea that one can, with the stroke of a pen, or the opening of the mouth, declare the world’s second largest religion, Islam, not a religion – after centuries of the world counting Islam as one of its major religions – is absurd.

    Sorry mosque opponents and attorney Joe Brandon. You don’t have the power or the authority to decide that Islam is not a religion. Islam is a religion. Islam is the world’s second largest religion. Islam has been a religion for hundreds of years. Islam is a religion.
