What a great story. I just wish the small but vocal group of people opposing the Murfreesboro Mosque could take a lesson from Pastor Tunnell to "follow the commands of Jesus and love people who are different from us."
I am not a Muslim myself but I appreciate that contributions that the members of the Murfreesboro Mosque have made to the area and I believe that they should have the right to worship as they see fit.
While we are on the subject of dangerous religious extremists, let's not forget the Christian terrorist that bombed a lot of innocent people at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta (Eric Rudolph). Maybe we should take a second look at people trying to build Christian churches. Perhaps they are just a front for converting more people to their cause.
More proof that the people wanting to turn our nation into an Iranian style theocracy would be better off minding their own business.
For what it is worth, I know a number of Muslims in the Nashville area and not once have any of them tried to persuade or convert me, much less, force me to join their faith.
Great food but bring cash. They don't take credit cards or checks.
It's about time! I just hope enough other politicians are finally wise enough to see the obvious and come on board to make this happen.
It amazes me that the Republican Party in Tennessee call themselves "Small Government Conservatives that love, adore and worship the Constitution" yet somehow seem to have forgotten the first amendment.
