liam76: I have never known a mosque not to broadcast Adhan. Must be very progressive, where is it?


The one a couple blocks from my house doesn't broadcast either, but the traffic is terrible. Problem one is the intersection design. The basic traffic has outgrown what was adequate for years. The second part are The Jihadi Mothers. These are women who, I suspect, are primarily recent immigrants. The all drive minivans. They all think it is perfectly OK to stop in the traffic lanes to pick up and discharge passengers. Lanes are a somewhat challenging concept to them too. And many of them drive v-e-r-y-s-l-o-w-l-y.

It makes me want to ululate.

You're tempted (as am I) to think it's about being Muslim, but these old people are serious as cancer about their noise ordinances.  When I visit my parents I spend some time reading the police blotter in the Boca Breeze to see what's going down.  It's mostly noise complaints regarding construction too early/late, yard work on a non yard work day (Sunday), power tool noise at unapproved times, and illegal RV/truck parking.

These people work their whole lives so they can save up enough money to move down to Florida and live out their golden years poking into each others' business and enforcing the rules.

jso2897: Looks that way this time. I've lived around rich NIMBYS, and I find it quite believable that they would be rabidly opposed to anybody doing anything in their vicinity. No religious prejudice needed, in this case.


That's a special subset of NIMBY - BANANA.

Diogenes: This is about a 1/2 mile from my house (I live in Dr. Phillips).

Traffic from the new Trader Joe's, new restaurant/shopping/entertainment complex, etc. doesn't seem to bother them.  And don't even try to get in and out of this neighborhood during the Bay Hill Invitational.  And we're adding new housing subdivisions all the time.

But suddenly traffic and "charm" are a concern.  Yeah, right.

I will say this:  They quietly demolished a church to put up that new Trader Joe's.  So there is a bit of consistency to their lie that it's "not about a mosque."


I wish they'd replace a church near me with a Trader Joe's.

Around here in NC the problem isn't mosques, but Christian churches that broadcast their services over loudspeakers outside of the building. There have been several lawsuits aimed at them to cut down the noise, and every single time the churches claim it is part of their belief system to distribute the sermons to the broadest possible audience, and so far the courts have refused to stop them from doing it. Their neighbors are justifiably upset; some of the subdivisions around these churches were there first, others came in afterwards, but every time the courts rule on the church's side and they keep blaring their sermons outside the buildings.

/thankful that one of those isn't nearby my house

People are trying to block rezoning for a proposed Walmart in my area using the same excuses. They're really just trying to oppress the religion of "Save money. Live better.". Bigots.

The article was pretty sparse. Did they mention in local coverage if the mosque would or would nto be allwoed to broadcast the call to prayers?


From my reading (local community papers, etc.) it will.  It's supposed to be fully operational, for lack of a better term.  Description of the architecture sounded interesting.  Hard to picture it, but it sounded rather modern.

I'll see if I can find an online copy.  It too, though, was rather sparse.  They're keeping some of the locals' more 'colorful' comments muted.
