Obama Learns Town Rejects Muslims, Immediately Gets This Sick Revenge
Activist federal governing has reached into small town politics using words like “compelling government interest” in order to help the Michigan Islamic Academy open a new school in an area with 35,000 people.
The Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against Pittsfield Township, Michigan, which, in 2011, disallowed the expansion of a Muslim school with reasonable justification.
MLive.com reported that traffic, lighting and noise pollution were major concerns. Also, the Township said that the proposal violated the Zoning “master plan,” which only allowed small-scale schools, and that the current land was zoned residential. All of these reasons were backed up by popular support from local residents.
After the 2011 ruling, immediate protests came from the Michigan Islamic Academy, promising litigation or interference from the Obama administration.
The activist Muslim group CAIR promptly sent a letter to the Department of Justice requesting intervention and asking for a full investigation.
And on Monday the DOJ sent this release:
“The law prohibits the government from imposing land use regulations that substantially burden religious exercise unless there is a compelling government interest and uses the least restrictive means of doing so,” said U.S. Attorney Barbara L. McQuade of the Eastern District of Michigan.
Additionally, the lack of definition of “compelling government interest” should leave Americans with some serious questions.
This gives rise to the question: What “compelling government interest” is there to force an Islamic school on a small Michigan township?
