Michigan Township to Pay $1.7 Million to Islamic School for Banning Its Construction
Obama’s Justice Department once again goes to war against decent Americans.
Pittsfield agreed to the $1.7 million settlement which was reached after two lawsuits were filed against it by the U.S. Justice Department and the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
‘”The township’s position from the beginning was and continues to be about protecting existing residents in this region from land uses that were not originally envisioned when they purchased their homes.”
Here again we see Islamic supremacists destroying a quiet, residential neighborhood. Demands for respect, tolerance and submission from the kuffar (non-Muslims) are coupled with contempt and disrespect for the kuffar. The opposition is not to the mosque per se, but to mega-structures going up on small, residential streets obliterating the quality of life and tranquility of residential living.

Like most legislation the government passes, the law of unintended consequences comes back to haunt us in spades. The original intent behind the “Religious Freedom Restoration Act,” while applied to all religions, was “most pertinent to Native American religions that are burdened by increasing expansion of government projects onto sacred land. In Native American religion the land they worship on is very important. Often the particular ceremonies can only take place in certain locations because these locations have special significance.”
By introducing this religious accommodation into law, the Republicans paved the way for the Islamic supremacists to destroy our freedoms and individual rights. The genie is out of the bottle, but RLUIPA ought to be repealed.
In passing these sweeping laws there was concern that “while intended to safeguard the core constitutional principle of religious
