What are your views of this?

Question #1) Do you think Christians should welcome Mosques? What about Mormon Temples, Jehovah Witness Churches, Satanic Churches, Buddhist Temples?

Question #2) Can you show me where Islamic Mosques welcome Christian Churches? Most of what I hear is how the censor, burn, and persecute Christians.

Question #3) If Islam is considered a false religion by Christians – should they “Welcome” a place where a false teaching will occur? Is that love ?

Federal Religious Discrimination Suit Filed Against Dixmoor, Ill.

Suit Alleges Dixmoor Leadership Maliciously Shut Down Church and is Playing “Shell Game” with Public Information

DIXMOOR, Ill., Aug. 27 /Christian Newswire/ — Today, the Power of Praise Worship Center Church (PPWC) filed a lawsuit against the Village of Dixmoor for violating a Federal land use law. The case has been assigned to Federal Judge Samuel Der-Yeghiayan The Religious Land Use and Institutional Persons Act of 2000 (RLUIPA) provides that no government shall impose a land use regulation that unreasonably burdens religious assemblies. The suit alleges that Dixmoor’s Code Enforcement Officer, Fred Cody, took matters into his own hands when he forced the church out of the building they were renting, citing that the church was in an area not zoned for religious use. This was after Dixmoor’s Village Board of Trustees agreed that PPWC could lawfully use a facility it rented.

Seeking to clarify how Dixmoor could justify removing the church, PPWC and its attorneys repeatedly asked for a complete copy of Dixmoor’s zoning code, which the village refused to provide. The suit charges both a violation of RLUIPA and refusing to comply with four Freedom of Information Act requests for copies of the code. PPWC filed the suit in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. The rented property is located at 14323 Western Avenue in Dixmoor.

“Dixmoor has been playing a ‘shell game’ with the church, as it has ignored or dodged four Freedom of Information requests for its zoning code,” said the church’s attorney, John Mauck, partner at Mauck & Baker LLC. “For a village to hide its zoning code would be like a town hiding the name of its mayor or another piece of basic public information.”

“We know this community is hurting and we want to bring hope to the hopeless by honoring Jesus, serving the people in Dixmoor and sharing God’s love,” said Pastor Nathaniel Holmes. According to the 2000 U.S. Census, 30 percent of Dixmoor’s population is below the poverty line. Holmes continued, “When we started using the facility, we had 50 members, and now we’re down to six because we had our house of worship ripped out from under us. We expect Dixmoor’s leadership to come clean and play by the rules of open government and respect the U.S. Constitution and Federal laws that prevent religious discrimination.”

“Is Dixmoor the new Wild West where one person takes the law into his hands and can shoot down a church?” said Mauck. “The village leadership made it clear that they wanted this church, but their Code Enforcement Officer has decided to operate by secret laws.”

PPWC is seeking a temporary restraining order to allow it to resume operating the church and prevent the Village of Dixmoor from threatening to remove PPWC from its rental property. In addition, the church is seeking financial damage for the time each member or former member has been denied their Free Exercise of Religion, and other unnecessary costs the Village has inflicted on the church.

Posted in Islam with tags , , , , , , on August 27, 2010 by saynsumthn

A Ground Zero mosque supporter hurled expletives towards a Holocaust survivor during the protests in NYC going as far to claim that he “obviously he didn’t learn his lesson all this time he was a Holocaust victim.”

“I have no problem cursing out an unpatriotic, treasonous, piece of garbage that wouldn’t know the god**mn Constitution if it hit him in the f***ing face”, the mosque supporter said of the Holocaust survivor when confronted afterward.

Muslims get access to fair for education, but when Christians attended Muslim fair they were arrested

Posted in Christian, Civil Rights, free speech, Islam with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 25, 2010 by saynsumthn

August 2010
A Minnesota group will try to educate fair-goers about the Muslim religion.

Volunteers with the Islamic Circle of North America say they will hand out cards titled “Islam Explained” because they want people to know what it means to be Muslim. While the group doesn’t have a licensed booth space to operate on the fairgrounds, it can still take advantage of the crowds. The group will be stationed outside gates 10 and 20.

The group says the outreach effort in Minnesota has nothing to do with the proposed Islamic community center near Ground Zero in Manhattan, which has caused national controversy.

St. Paul police tell 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS the volunteers can hand out literature on the sidewalks as long as they don’t block the sidewalks.

The group also has radio ads that will start airing Monday. Those ads will include a number people can call to ask questions about Islam.

However, a recent Press Release from: The Thomas More Law Center, a public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, announced it is representing all four of the Christian missionaries. Police told Christians they’d have to go 5 BLOCKS away from an Muslim festival to distribute Gospel tracks.

ANN ARBOR, MI – Must see videos. Two videos dramatically describe how Sharia law is being enforced in Dearborn, Michigan where Dearborn Police Officers arrested four Christian missionaries. The missionaries explain in their own words what happened.

The first video documents the actual arrest of some of the missionaries. Later in the video the missionaries give an account of the events leading up to their arrest and overnight detention.

On Saturday, the missionaries attempted to peacefully distribute copies of the Gospel of John outside the entrance to the Arab festival. Within three minutes, the Christians were surrounded by eight Dearborn police officers and ordered to cease and desist. These events were also captured on video Below:

In what some have described as police enforcement of Sharia law at the annual Dearborn Arab International Festival, last Friday night (6/18/2010) Dearborn Police Officers arrested four Christian missionaries and illegally confiscated their video cameras which were recording the events surrounding their arrests. The Thomas More Law Center, a public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, today announced it is representing all of the Christian missionaries.

Arrested on charges of Breach of the Peace are: Negeen Mayel, Dr. Nabeel Qureshi, Paul Rezkalla, and David Wood. Mayel, an eighteen year old female, whose parents emigrated from Afghanistan and a recent convert from Islam to Christianity, was also charged with failure to obey a police officer’s orders. She was approximately 100 feet away and videotaping a discussion with some Muslims when her camera was seized.

Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, commented, “These Christian missionaries were exercising their Constitutional rights to free speech and the free exercise of religion, but apparently the Constitution carries little weight in Dearborn, where the Muslim population seems to dominate the political apparatus. It’s apparent that these arrests were a retaliatory action over the embarrassing video of the strong arm tactics used last year by Festival Security Guards. This time, the first thing police officers did before making the arrests was to confiscate the video cameras in order to prevent a recording of what was actually happening.”

Thompson continued, “Contrary to the comments made by Police Chief Ron Haddad, our Constitution does not allow police to ban the right of free speech just because there are some hecklers. Not all police officers approve of the way their department treated these Christians.”

Robert Muise, Senior Trial Counsel with the Law Center in charge of the case, yesterday faxed a letter to Chief Haddad demanding that the three video cameras and tapes illegally seized from the missionaries be immediately returned.

The Law Center is also representing Pastor George Saeig who was prohibited by the Festival and Police authorities from distributing religious material at last year’s festival. That case is ongoing.

Here is the 2009 incident:
