A day after the U.S. Attorney’s office released a briefing that defending Islam as a religion, the attorney for the opponents of the Rutherford County Islamic Center fired back.
Attorney Joe Brandon announced Tuesday in front of the county courthouse that he and his three plaintiffs won’t accept the federal briefing and standby their position that Islam is not a religion.
“The real question I think becomes who is the federal government representing in this particular situation? They claim that the United States takes this position. I can assure you that the three plaintiffs in this case, who are U.S. citizens, do not accept the position that the federal government is attempting to shove down their throat,” said Brandon.
U.S. Attorney Jerry E. Martin of Nashville said Monday his office would not sit by while mosque opponents raise questions in court about whether Islam is a recognized religion. Martin said in a statement that to suggest otherwise “is quite simply ridiculous.” H/T Herr OYAL
