Please make a complaint with the DOJ [perhaps get a new attorney as well]-- see below

Zoning and Landmarking Laws - protected Relgious conduct
ĽA small church is denied a permit to operate out of a storefront in a commercial zone, even though nonprofit groups including fraternal lodges, a dance studio, and a theater company are permitted in the same zone.

ĽA town's zoning ordinance requires all houses of worship to obtain a variance in order to locate within its borders. While there are a number of churches already in town, every application for a new house of worship since the ordinance was adopted has been denied.

ĽA rabbi periodically holds prayer meetings in his home with 10 to 15 people. He is cited for zoning violations for operating a house of worship in a residential zone.

ĽA Hindu congregation is denied a building permit despite meeting all zoning requirements for height, setback, and parking. The zoning administrator is overheard making a disparaging remark about Hindus.

These examples may be violations of the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000 (RLUIPA), which protects individuals, houses of worship, and other religious institutions from zoning and landmarking laws that substantially burden religious exercise without a compelling government justification. RLUIPA also bars the government from applying zoning and landmarking laws in a manner that discriminates against particular religions, treats religious assemblies or institutions on less than equal terms than nonreligious assemblies or institutions, or unreasonably excludes houses of worship from a jurisdiction. The Civil Rights Division is authorized to bring suit to enforce RLUIPA. If you believe your rights against discriminatory or unduly burdensome zoning and landmarking laws have been violated, you may contact the Division's Housing and Civil Enforcement Section (contact information above).

I already made my point. Thankyou very much. And by the way I am outrage, flabbergasted and developing hemorroides.

Women produce only few large eggs and must spend years of their lives growing embryos in their bodies.
What a life: Boring!
Meanwile men produce millions of tiny sperm each time and need inversting nothing more in a potential off spring than the effort of an ejaculation as a favor to these damsels.
Women will behave in ways that encourage male investmen after impregnation (protection, feeding, economic wealth) whereas men would rather wander right often in search of other mates in a never-ending quest for maximal genetic spread.
Aren't we glorious?
Aren't we precious?
