PSA for All Muslim Masjid/Mosque/Islamic Center Project Developers
In 2000 a Republican-backed FEDERAL LAW (enforceable by the U.S. Department of Justice) was enacted that protects the rights of the developers the same way it protected the rights of those seeking to develop Park51 in New York; regardless of the absence of foresight into their choice of location.
CHAPTER 21C--PROTECTION OF RELIGIOUS EXERCISE IN LAND USE AND BY INSTITUTIONALIZED PERSONS - SOURCE
The Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act states that, "No government shall impose or implement a land use regulation in a manner that imposes a substantial burden on the religious exercise of a person, including a religious assembly or institution," unless it meets very strict conditions.
Nor may any government inflict a regulation that discriminates "on the basis of religion or religious denomination." Thus, it is clearly designed to protect individuals and houses of worship from discriminatory and unduly burdensome zoning regulations, and protects the religious exercise of all Americans.
Knowledge is power.
