    Tenn. mosque won't open in time for Ramadan
    19 July`12 -- Local Muslims who scored a victory with a federal judge's ruling that cleared the way for a controversial mosque to open will not be able to worship in the facility in time for the start of Ramadan at sundown Thursday.

    Good decision. We dont need the government telling people how to worship and whether they can open a place of worship. Especially if they comply with the law.

    The decision to allow or not allow this or any other type of business model within any given industry should be in the hands of people closer to the neighborhood of occupancy.

    It should be a state or county decision, not federal. Same for porn shops & titty bars, casinos and other forms of controversial entertainment.

    They never said why an expansion was needed in the first place and told the locals they didn't matter this is going to lead to blood.

    So if my neighbors and I do not want green eyed red headed midget women opening a business near us they should be banned from doing so.
    Maybe in Lah Lah land but not in America. We have Federal laws banning such discrimination and I am thankful we do.

    :lmao:

    If you can convince 75% of the people in Georgia to do that, I think the rest of us should probably allow it just because of the entertainment value, and as reward for the selling skills involved. That kind of a sales pitch would need to be rewarded with something.
