Backlash has continued over the recent decision to build a mosque in New York City, just down the street from Ground Zero. Now, further south in Tennessee, a similar debate is brewing.
Many residents in small-town Murfreesboro, Tenn., feel a 52,000-square-foot Islamic center set to be built near their homes was unfairly approved.
Opponents argue that a proposal for the mosque was never included in a public notice as done in the past with other construction plans.
There's also concern over where funding for the mosque came from and individuals linked to the mosque who may have a connection to radical Islam.
