Nice Free Country Ya Got There. Be a Shame if Anything Happened to It ...


Per NBC 11 in Atlanta, Georgia:

The Kennesaw City Council voted on Monday to reject the request of a group of Muslims seeking to establish a worship center in the city.

...

The local Islamic group wanting to rent the retail space for their worship center agreed to every limitation that the Kennesaw city attorney wanted to impose ...

Naturally, the media is framing this as a matter of religious liberty, and that's true as far as it goes.

But ...

"Request?"

"Conditions?"

Last time I checked, Kennesaw, Georgia wasn't in North Korea. Neither Muslims nor anyone else should have to "request" permission from, or submit to the "conditions" of, Kennesaw's politicians to rent property or to pray (or do anything else peaceful) on that property.
