One resident told the commission, it isn’t only the mosque itself, it’s what goes on inside the mosque. “They’re not teaching them to love their neighbors. They’re teaching them to take over this country.”
One would think they would get the picture already. It isn’t mosques that we don’t want in America, it’s Muslims we don’t want. Get out!
WTVR– Some Henrico residents wasted no time telling the county’s planning commission why a mosque should not be built in their neighborhood. The traffic and noise generated from a mosque are main concerns and also, its proximity to Holladay Elementary School. Not to mention the eardrum shattering noise from the Muslim call to prayer which can be blasted from loud speakers up to five time a day.
Members of the Muslim community want the zoning of a lot behind Holladay Elementary changed from office to residential. A residential classification would allow for a place of worship on the property. Members who spoke before the commission say they must travel to Chesterfield or pray in a hotel conference room. The Mosque’s investors say they looked at other properties after getting turned down by the commission for the same request back in 2008, but, no other property was accessible enough.
