    Pastor denied permit ahead of mosque protest
    It's possible Rev. Terry Jones could be arrested if he carries through with the protest Fri., says Dearborn, Mich. spokeswoman


    [​IMG]
    DEARBORN, Mich. - Dearborn has denied a permit to a Florida pastor who plans to protest outside a mosque in the Michigan city.


    Dearborn spokeswoman Mary Laundroche tells The Detroit News it's possible the Rev. Terry Jones could be arrested if he carries through with the protest Friday outside the Islamic Center of America. Jones has said he plans to demonstrate outside the mosque with or without a permit.


    Wayne County prosecutors say they fear the protest could lead to violence, and a judge has ordered Jones to appear Thursday to answer questions about the event. Prosecutors want him to post a "peace bond" to pay for additional police officers during the demonstration.

    Does his right to peaceable assembly out-weigh their right to freely practice their religion???

    If they deny him his "rights", then when are they going to deny Westboro Baptist Church's "rights"?

    Guess that says all we to know about the religion of peace now does'nt it?

    Good Muslims should be outraged that the old idiot is'nt allowed to have his little protest. Whatever happened to HIS rights?

    It seems that radical islamists have taken that religion over and thats a shame.

    Bigots and racists have the same rights normal thinking humans have, this seems unconstitutional.

    I strongly doubt it is in anyway constitutional for them to do that, in as much as I dislike what it is that he and his followers are doing they do have a right to peacefully assemble. I rather believe they know this but now it will take time and expense to bring it to court. Its a delaying tactic being used Dearborn to stop any further problems.

    Yeah I hope everyone who's taking the freedom of speech side with me remember this, so in the future when an atheist or muslim group wants to protest a church they don't try to get government to stop it.

    Hey did you guys know that Fred Phelps was involved in Civil Rights? Did you guys know that Phelps was a Lawyer? Did you know that in the 1980s, Phelps received awards from the Greater Kansas City Chapter of Blacks in Government and the Bonner Springs branch of the NAACP for his work on behalf of black clients?

    Did you know that 11 of his 13 children are Lawyers? You may not agree with what they say or do, but they are certainly not dummies.
    Fred Phelps - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    ATTN: The stupid among you will read this and think I'm defending the Westboro Baptist Church, nothing could be further from the truth. I'm merely pointing out the facts.

    I remember when the Nazis wanted to parade through Skokie Illinois.

    The city fathers and the Jews Who lived there .

    Did everything in their power to deny them the right of their freedom Of speech and right to assemble .

    But that was Jews and not Muslims .

    So it was okay . :doubt:
