The federal government is going after the small town of St. Anthony, Minnesota, because the City Council did not approve plans for a new Islamic Center. The PC police have come out in full force and are shouting discrimination at the top of their lungs.

The lawsuit alleges that the Council’s decision to deny the Abu Huraira Islamic Center the right to establish a worship center in the basement of the St. Anthony Business Center violates the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act passed by Congress in 2000.

U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger said at a news conference in Minneapolis:

“An injustice has been done. I will not stand by while any religious group is subject to unconstitutional treatment that violates federal civil rights laws. Though we have filed our lawsuit, we hope the good people of St. Anthony, including the elected officials who made this decision, will change their minds and allow Abu Huraira to conduct prayer services in this space.”

The City Council of St. Anthony is standing up for something which the federal government notoriously ignores – the will of the people. The Midwestern United States has become a haven for Muslims. For the most part, we have accommodated their religious beliefs, even when inconvenient. Now, the people of St. Anthony have had enough and do not want another staple of the Islamic faith in their town. This is completely understandable with the recent threat of ISIS worldwide.

Do you think St. Anthony should be forced to house the Abu Huraira Islamic Center, even if the majority of the town’s residents are opposed to the idea? Sound off in the comments section!
