Of course the decision by the Kennesaw City Council to reject a request to build a mosque in the city is discriminatory. Opponents don’t even try to conceal it.
Karen Untz, who traveled to Kennesaw from Cumming to protest the mosque, said she was pleased with the council’s decision.
“(Muslims) are moving into all these small towns, and they’re camping out,” Untz said. “There’s no such thing as a temporary mosque. They claim the space and they teach Shariah law.”
Councilwoman Debra Williams said she voted against the proposed mosque because she did not think a religious center should operate inside a retail shopping center.
Yet Williams and all four other council members voted unanimously in July to allow a Pentecostal church in a retail center when the council approved Redeemed Christian Fellowship Church to use a 4,000 square-foot unit in a center on the corner of Ben King Road and Cherokee Street.
Score one for religious bigotry.
