I am Christian, my husbsnd is Jewish, when we were young we all went to church n synogogue. The white race at one time was dedicsted to relgion. Ournreligion numbers are downward and we all know it. Attendance is slow, moneys to the church limited. This country invited the muslims, indians and others here. They pay taxes, they vote, they work with you, their kids go to our schools, come to your birthdays. They have EVERY right to build, because their membershipmis bwtter thsn yours is your problem. I am in favor of their building as long as it complirs tomthe same rules of any other church. No favorites and stop causing hardships here. We live in America, not a comunist country
