Posted on 11/18/2011 10:08:06 AM PST by Nachum
The Justice Department is launching an inquiry into the decision of a Los Angeles suburb to deny a local mosques planned expansion.
Federal officials are looking into whether or not Lomita, California city council members violated the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act when they rejected the construction plans almost two years ago, according to the Daily Breeze, a local newspaper.
City Attorney Christ Hogin told the newspaper that the investigation started in July.
The city council denied that religion played a role in their decision, which they said was influenced by concerns over traffic and parking.

Muzzie lawfare from the Obama Administration!
“The Justice Department is launching an inquiry into the decision of a Los Angeles suburb to deny a local mosques planned expansion”
The DOJ screwed the town of Lilburn GA on this issue not long ago. What small town has the funds to fight hussein?
Not to mention sudden jihadism, suicide bombings, honor killings and other such Islamic religious celebrations.
Obama’s actions anything for a vote.
The bass turd is spending our money..... to defend a foreign invasive constitution.
Islam is many things, a warriors cult with its own constitution who’s only goal is to supplant and replace any constitution that confronts it.
Sounds like treason and sedition.
I would agree with your comment on virtually all of LObama’s actions with the EXCEPTION of that which deals with Muslims. This Halfrican is a MUSLIM! Plain and simple. He does this not for votes; he does it for Allah.
fyi, headline at Drudge:
Four NH Lawmakers Call Obama Birth Certificate 'Forged'..
What next? An exec order imposing Sharia law?
Easy pickins for CAIR and their sycophants in the WH, and DOJ. Lomita is a bedroom city about a mile and a half square with everything pretty much jobbed out to Los Angeles relative to law enforcement, medical, etc.
Lomita is a place you go through to get where you actually want to go.
Does anyone know if this is the most liteginous administration in this nation’s history?
Get rid of this effin Hussein Obama! He is ruining America. This is so aggravating. Dump Obama Nov2012
This law was passed with good intentions back in the '90s.
It was meant to protect religious groups from being "zoned out." Iirc it was formulated to address genuine instances of discrimination against groups (mainly Evangelical Christians) in some secularized, mostly wealthy areas.
In any case, the law has been abused by groups with an agenda, e.g. the Muslim Brotherhood, whose documented goal is to establish mosques everywhere in America (especially in rural and suburban areas where their location may be very ill-suited).
Unfortunately RLUIPA allows not only towns to be sued for "discrimination," but also individual planning board members. It is horribly expensive to be sued in Federal Court, so boards are terrified to say "no" to a religious institution.
Doubly frightening is the prospect of turning down a mosque's application, for reasons I don't think I need to spell out.
This makes it almost impossible for a local zoning board to turn down a mosque-building project, even where traffic, parking and environmental concerns are completely valid.
Agree This Halfrican is a MUSLIM! but he would never pass up a vote.He needs to stay in office for his brothers.
Just substitute ¨church¨ for mosque then reflect on how likely this would be. Sharia well advanced.
Understood. I’m just trying to say this Muslim would even go against his traditional lazy base to enact something significant his Muslim Imams demand, that’s all.
Make no mistake, we are at war with vicious enemy within.
No other country in all of history has come so close to completely destroying America. `
Don’t know, but the most corrupt I’m about certain.
Noooooo, Obama isn’t a muslim. Not at all./s
How many lawsuits has the Holder DOJ brought on behalf of Christians for the right to build churches? Or on behalf of Christians who are forbidden to hold prayer meetings in their houses?
Not sure how many people here have been to the Middle East. I spent two weeks in Kuwait in May. There was a mosque about every TWO BLOCKS! And more being built....
From where I stayed with a family, I could hear the prayers from the mosque across the street. When you looked out the opposite window of the condo, there was another mosque under construction.
Seriously, how do they think they have ANY standing to get involved with this?
We’ve got to get rid of this administration.
