Why Muslim Mayor Blocks Christian Church.

This is unbelievable but very much expected.  Of course, in the free lands of North America, we could never argue like this.  (Remember the Mosque issue at the 9/11 site.)

This story is wild.  A Christian group buys a building to use as a church but the Mayor of this Indonesia town says they can't open.  Wait until you read the reason.   Beside the main reason (you'll get it when you pursue the link below), they also said they have to consider "peace and security" -- not only for the all the city's citizens but also for the "Christians".   How thoughtful.

I'm sure there will be a big call now for certain types of streets (at least as far as their names go) from now on.  (You'll get that when you read the story below.)   Also, what is the distance between between a street, a neighborhood, a region, and a country?   Not much on this continuum, and in no time, all churches will be banned from Muslim states.

Maybe we could try saying, "no mosques" on anywhere Judaism or Christianity has/have a hold.  From one perspective, that would be all of America (and Canada) that was established on those principles.   On another, "go ahead and build your mosque" wherever you like -- we're North Americans."
