Land Use proposals apply to Land Use.
But Muslims want to cry Islamophobia.
Muslims have a victim complex.

I have lived in places where they declare a church zone, away from neighborhoods. Houses of worship are simply built in a row.
I have seen a huge christian church wreck a neighborhood. Huge parking lot, traffic, racket...

'islamophobia' is not a real word.
phobia means the fear is irrational. Recent history shows that fear of Islam is *NOT* irrational any more than fear of Chistianity is irrational in Ireland, Sri Lanka, Serbia, or the Congo.
This is not to be confused with muslims. Most (and I *DO* mean *MOST*- so not all, but a large majority) don't dress in burka's or hajabs, and actually object to them. They drink occasionally, and many smoke tobacco - a few smoke pot. All of them swear occasionally, watch sports, have potlacks, etc...most muslims I know are well on their way to assimilation. It really is a large vocal minority, which agitates me even more why they're pandered to. But this doesn't place christians, jews, or any other faiths above them legally (as far as 'rights' go). EVERYONE is protected by the 1st Amendment, for better or for worse.
I say we stop building new 'houses of worhip' altogether. Like I say to my 1yo: "If you can't play nice, I'm putting your toys away."
