NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP/WMOT) — The Islamic Center of Murfreesboro received its final occupancy certificate Thursday. Friday, opponents of the Mosque continued their effort to prevent the new worship center from being used.
Islamic Center of Murfreesboro board chairman Essam Fathy says he’s relieved and happy the mosque has its permanent occupancy permit.
Since construction was approved in May 2010, the mosque has been targeted by vandalism, arson and a bomb threat.
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- Tennessee’s Republicans are resisting calls to reign in conservatives on the party’s right flank.
Stories this week in Tennessee’s two largest newspapers, the Commercial Appeal in Memphis and the Tennessean here in the Mid-State, call into question comments made recently by county-level GOP officials concerning gays and Muslims.
At the national level, Republican Party leadership spoke out forcefully this week against similar comments made by Congresswoman Michelle Bachman.
