Murfreesboro mosque breaks ground

(CNN)– CNN affiliate WSMV reports only a few protesters showed up at the mosque ground breaking in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

The building of the mosque has faced considerable controversy.

The Murfreesboro Muslim community's story was featured this spring in CNN documentary, "Unwelcome: The Muslims Next Door."

    "They want to build here because it's the geographical center of Tennessee."

    WHAAAAT??!! HELLLLOOOO.....?!

    Thank you for your service in Vietnam, but those Muslims LIVE there!! Their building a mosque on their Islamic Center property has NOTHING to do with Murfreesboro being the (alleged) "geographical center of Tennessee"!! Stir clear of the obvious conspiracy theorists you've been palling around with!! "Unfriend" them on Facebook!

      Thank you Jesus! I'm glad they finally started to build it. These are good people just trying to worship their God. I wish some of my so called Christian brothers and sisters would be as good. These people were here when 9/11 hit they did go around blowing up stuff in support. NO! Al caidia has been trying to get to the US since 9/11 if any of these people were in support of that guess what there already here. Not one has tried to do anything to harm anyone. The few fools that did try to attack us were christians who joined alciada after 9/11, Those terrorist have tried to hijack Islam but they can't they can only twist it and find a few weak minded people to believe their lies, just like that Koran burning nut in fl does with christianity, no difference just people taking the Bible or the Koran out of context.

      Leota, that is a very nice response and I wish more so called christians were more open also but I want to correct you on one thing you indicated that they have there own god and Muslims do not see themselves as worshipping their god they worship the god of the christians and jews. Muslims, including myself use god and Allah interchangeably knowing it is the one and only god they we are referring to.

    May I ask you a question without you going on a tyrade about athiests and handles, etc.? My question is, why do you always type "Amen" after your posts. Are all of your posts prayers? I don't get that. Just asking, not trying to offend.

    "https://creepingsharia.wordpress.com and Jihadwatch. Open your eyes to the wonders of Sharia."

    ~A little on the paranoid and absolutist side. There is a large Muslim population in Dearborn, Michigan. They've been here for eons, yet I have yet to hear of any of them attempting to influence even local politics with the "wonders of Sharia."

    "Or haven't the gays figured out a way to legislate it in? They did in New York."

    ~Dude, I said in a "majority of the 50 states." New York is just one of a minority, yes?

    "You mean like liberals kowtow to muslim immigrants world-wide? You're a nitwit, Nancy. Republicans cater almost exclusively to corporate America. The vocal christian right only gets an occasional bone when deemed necessary, unless the issue is a concern shared by and beneficial to American business. Want an example?

    Gay marriage."

    ~*sigh* Such rudeness to a total stranger – one of the drawbacks of the anonymous interwebs. I won't denigrate you by calling you names, but I will ask you how you feel that "liberals" kow-tow to Muslim immigrants worldwide. Could it be because those of us who aren't prejudiced against people of differing (or any) religions actually accept them into our communities?

    As for the "vocal christian right" only getting a bone every now and then from the corporatist-controlled Republicans, I'd say that they're getting more than that. I fail to see where the anti-abortion, prayer in schools, god in the courthouse, let them die, death penalty, anti-gay stances of some of the Republican Presidential candidates serves their corporate masters.

    Then again, I'm "a nitwit," and couldn't possibly see the complexities of the corporate puppet masters nefarious plans. Pfft. ALL politicians are beholden to their corporate overlords. The only difference lies in how far they're willing to bend over and compromise their own values to do it. I'm enjoying the antics of the buffoons running on the Republican ticket – mostly because some of them haven't seen their feet in ages, but they seem to be finding them now! 🙂

      @ Nancy

      " I have yet to hear of any of them [in Dearborn] attempting to influence even local politics with the "wonders of Sharia."

      If you're a non-muslim living in Dearborn, chances are pretty good that you're turning a blind eye just for the sake of harmony. The Jones 'trial' is a prime example. Don't get me wrong – I don't advocate burning any book, but -our- laws allow it. Book, flag, etc.., go to it if you wish, as it's our right. The display by the Dearborn council and uprising by your local 'peaceful' muslims to silence Jones were in clear violation of US free speech laws. Distasteful as Jones' words might have been to the Dearborn muslims, his "muzzling" (had to, sorry..) gave your city a black eye, and gave the country a glimpse into the future, courtesy of your muslim neighbors. There is -no- free speech in England any longer – courtesy of the islamists. It cannot happen here as much as the U.N would prefer it. We cannot allow it.

      If you paid any attention to the creepingsharia or jihadwatch sites and -didn't- see any references to sharia being implemented (or attempted) in the US it's because you didn't want to. It's there, it's obvious, and it's only discounted or dismissed by islamic apologists or those who choose to ignore it. Even if you're a roaring, extremist "Zinn & Chomsky" kinda gal, you're only kidding yourself by disregarding it, which, of course, is your choice. You would indeed be a nitwit for doing so, but the choice is nonetheless yours to make.

      "Dude, I said in a "majority of the 50 states." New York is just one of a minority, yes?

      It's called States' Rights. Good luck getting any semblance of a 'majority' without Federal legislation, so stop antagonizing over the unobtainable by using -your- utopian vision as a benchmark. Not everyone thinks like you. Or each other. Or in some cases... at all. But in this country, majority rule's the rule. Don't like it? Either legislate it out, or work on morphing public opinion.

      "... how [do] you feel that "liberals" kow-tow to Muslim immigrants worldwide. Could it be because those of us who aren't prejudiced against people of differing (or any) religions actually accept them into our communities?"

      I'll direct you to a couple of starting points, but for your own sake, I suggest that you do the research for yourself. Consider the impact of unlimited muslim immigration in England, France, Denmark, The Netherlands, Sweden, Norway (yeah.. I know. consider instead the political reversals and societal impact, not the counterproductive acts of one lone loon – god forbid, for now.) Review the events across the countries of East Africa. Be aware of cloisters of muslims establishing 'no-go' zones for police and public services across Europe; ongoing FMG occurring in (and disregarded by) Western countries, and state-sponsored islamic schools advocating anti-western curricula. Saudi money funneled to Columbia, Harvard and Princeton (among others) has fostered the creation of "islamic-only" toilets in campus buildings. Same for American airports where muslim immigrants have demanded separate islamic "footbaths" which were built with public money. Muslims have demanded, and been given, special 'female-only, no males allowed' sequestered time in municipal and university swimming pools. All of this has been "demanded" in the name of their "religion." There's a word for what's quietly going on here.

      It's called apartheid. And yes, it's prejudical – on their part. Rational non-muslims, (dare I say 'kafir?" ) don't 'care' what muslims do, unless it affects them. Then we need to care, and many of us do. My guess is that you can't see the forest for the trees in Dearborn. But please, for your own sake, do the research for yourself.

      " I fail to see where the anti-abortion, prayer in schools, god in the courthouse, let them die, death penalty, anti-gay stances of some of the Republican Presidential candidates serves their corporate masters."

      We have a 1.7 person per capita reproduction rate. 'Nuff said. Schools? Christians will always try to get a toe in the door, just as muslims have. Muslims have been more successful, (yet I don't see you complaining about that... why is that, Nancy? I think we both know. ) Regarding "let them die" (where'd you get that 'quote.?') and the death penalty: guess what. It's going to get worse. It costs and average of 75K/yr to 'house' a criminal. Prisons are big business, so let's build more and employ another 25,000 guards. Sounds great, until the state budgets can't support it any longer. Ergo, we'll no longer house violent offenders under the guise of rehab or moral severity. See ya. Doesn't matter if it's a deterrent or not. We just can't afford your three hots and cot. How long? Best estimates are five to ten years. Same for terminally ill and/or PVS (persistent vegetative state), and similar long-term care patients. Obama wants to cut T18/19? Go ahead and watch what the health care provider market starts to do. "Here... just sign this form." Anti-Gay? One word... benefits.

      Then again, I'm "a nitwit,"

      Geez, thin skinned much?

      "... and [ I ] couldn't possibly see the complexities of the corporate puppet masters nefarious plans."

      Only you know your own capabilities.

      "their own values"

      Politicians have values? Really? Let's rethink that one.

      "... the buffoons running on the Republican ticket"

      Agree. They could take it, but they don't want it. That's the $64K question. I understand the throwaway in '08, but now?

I know many Muslims who are great people, and am happy that my child was able to grow up in a diverse community. And, I'd also take my muslim neighbors any day over my next door neightbor who is not! Funny how when it comes to mosques being built, everyone gets their underwear in an uproar. We have mosques here that I drive by everyday and it's no different than driving by a church. My goodness people, let's all try to get along; it's not as hard as you think it is.

    Too bad the good, evangelical, CHRISTIAN people in Tennessee can't follow their own religious text's admonition to love their neighbor. Too bad their evangelical preachers are too busy foaming at the mouth and fomenting this sort of narrow-minded, mean-spirited bigotry. Too bad the construction of any house of worship actually makes headlines on a site like CNN. I shudder to think what Faux News is saying about it.

    September 30, 2011 at 12:55 am |
    • HeavenSent

      Nancy, the folks in Tennessee are following His truth via Matthew 5

      29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast [it] from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not [that] thy whole body should be cast into hell.

      Matthew 5:30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast [it] from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not [that] thy whole body should be cast into hell.

      Being a non-believer in Jesus Christ isn't being a brother, sister or a neighbor to a Christian. You believe the phony baloney man made theories taught by the Pope and his cronies to the world. Pluck it out or Cut it off means to rid the person or persons out of your church for not being true believers in Jesus Christ.

      Amen.

      Well, Henry, you're not thinking past your nose. It's inconsequential -what- I think HAA is or isn't. I don't know him and, based upon his insults to me earlier, during what I thought was an sincere conversation about foreskins, I don't care to know him. I do, however, enjoy pulling his short little judgmental and self-righteous chain on occasion.

      What I really care about is that for such an committed atheist he's awfully soft on islam, and he certainly doesn't seem to be the exception to the otherwise hostile, fervent, and insecure new pop-culture atheist community. It's all about Christianity all the time, as if they're the only ones that matter. This of course is bullshít. He's a fine representative of his atheist peers who all share his not-so-hidden agenda. Whether they're misguided atheists, islamic sympathizers or outright muslims, they're simply regurgitating the same political hack and spit of marginalizing and demeaning western beliefs in an effort to weaken the impact of the American religious lobby and/or culture.

      So back-ass wards and ineffective. HAA's initial comment here was just a bit more amateurish, thus transparent. The one thing I -do- know about HAA is that he's not very bright, so comments like this are pretty much a personal a 'high water mark' for him.

      Re: muslim 'tradition', I don't think the US military cared. They just didn't want his body to become a islamic shrine. More of a case of looking for a loose justification for dumping his body to the grouper. "Burial at sea? Works for us."

      Please don't equate Saudi woman drivers dilemma with Islam. That is a purely cultural and tribal practice, nothing to do with religion. No such practice exists in any other Muslim majority nation, if only you cared to learn that, but perhaps your built in Islamophobia would not be served otherwise.

      Islam and it laws give women almost no rights and treats them like fodder for the male species as so bluntly noted by Ayaan H-irsi Ali in her autobiography, In-fidel.

      "Thus begins the extraordinary story of a woman born into a family of desert nomads, circ-umcised as a child, educated by radical imams in Kenya and Saudi Arabia, taught to believe that if she uncovered her hair, terrible tragedies would ensue. It's a story that, with a few different twists, really could have led to a wretched life and a lonely death, as her grandmother warned. But instead, H-irsi Ali escaped - and transformed herself into an internationally renowned spokeswoman for the rights of Muslim women."

      September 30, 2011 at 12:13 am |
    • Reality

      some excerpts from Infidel:

      "Some of the Saudi women in our neighborh-o-od were regularly beaten by their husbands. You could hear them at night. Their scr-eams resounded across the courtyards. "No! Please! By Allah!"

      "The Pakistanis were Muslims but they too had ca-stes. The Unto-uchable girls, both Indian and Pakistani were darker skin. The others would not play with them because they were unto-uchable. We thought that was funny because of course they were touchable: we touched them see? but also h-or-rifying to think of yourself as untouchable, de-sp-icable to the human race."

      Between October 2004 and May 2005, eleven Muslim girls were killed by their families in just two regions (there are 20 regions in Holland). After that, people stopped telling me I was exaggerating."

      "The kind on thinking I saw in Saudi Arabia and among the Brotherhood of Kenya and Somalia, is incompatible with human rights and liberal values. It preserves the feudal mind-set based on tribal concepts of honor and shame. It rests on self-deception, hyprocricy, and double standards. It relies on the technologial advances of the West while pretending to ignore their origin in Western thinking. This mind-set makes the transition to modernity very painful for all who practice Islam".

      I fail to see how this incident can be extrapolated to mean that muslims in America will start enacting laws similar to those in Saudi Arabia. Unless you think that, since Christians have managed to figure out a way to legislate away gay marriage in a majority of the 50 states, the people of Islam will be equally successful in pushing their religion down our throats as well?

      If it happens, it will be solely due to the precedent set by those who currently kow-tow to the rabidly religious, like most of the current Republican Presidential candidates? 😉

      Eric, funny you should say that, because I am a sprinkler fitter. I hope it has a glycol system-which actually feeds the fire before the water arrives. Or maybe the occupant will leave the control valve closed. ooops.

    They have enough things to worry about other then people building a house of worship. Why don't they protest the release of a repeat child molester or someone who is an actual clear and direct threat to the community.

      Honestly, it's just that people in this Tennessee town really hate Muslims and truely believe it's completely cool to try and stop this mosque at all costs because they equate all muslims with terrorists
