If they didn't want the Muslim/Islamic faith folks to buy it, the detractors should have bought it themselves... This is a great thing about America... If you can afford, you can buy it.

"U.S. Department of Justice continues to investigate allegations of anti-Muslim bias in the city's rejection." Really? How long could could that take?

St. Anthony council is doing the exact same thing to the Muslim that May Township council is doing the Hmong. The Hmong are being driven out of May Township farming by making ridiculous farming restrictions that ONLY pertains to the Hmong farmers. For example, you can't farm until 7am and have to quit by dusk. Is there a farmer in the world that works within these hours? Local government uses bogus land use as an excuse to keep these people out. Everyone can clearly see it's racist neighbors and council members not wanting different culture or people showing up in "their" neighborhood. If it was white farmers in May Township or a Christian group purchasing this property in St. Anthony, none of these objections would be on the news.

Having once lived in a city of over 200,000 in California where Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists and athiests were the overwhelming majority, and where Seal Team Six was not once called in to fix anything, I have to say I find these St. Anthony folks more than a little provincial. The world has changed. Catch up, folks.

I don't understand what will happen if they use the property for worship. Are they subject to arrest? Or is this just about not getting a tax-exemption as a church?
