MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) It's finally opening day for a Tennessee mosque after opponents waged a two-year court battle trying to stop it.

Leaders of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro say they intend to hold midday prayers in the new building Friday.

Construction was nearly halted in May when a state court ruled the public didn't get enough notice that the center was planned. Last month, a federal judge granted the mosque's request for an emergency order that would open the building in time for the holy month of Ramadan, which is still under way.

If a burial strikes my family as too practical, I'd go for either a viking funeral on one of the Great Lakes or to be sealed up in a tomb with my closest servants and bang-maids so they may wait on my every need in the afterlife.

I don't think the "b word" is strong enough to describe how horrible she is, aside from the fact that I'm not sure I even like using that word...

What a truly great reason to support the construction of this mosque. Much better than nonsense like *shudder* freedom of religion.

For me that goes without saying.  I was just joking.

That it was being opened at all. Because, you know, Muslims.

That's what I thought. I can't believe it's even being called controversial by the press. Headlines should just read "Bigots finally forced to accept freedom of religion not just for Christians".

Would New Yorkers set the mosque on fire, though?

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

Alfred is the Atlasian equivalent of a malevolent deity.

New York construction workers threatened to dynamite it.

Why do Muslims bother to live in a place like Tennessee anyways? Or for that matter anywhere in the US?

Yeah that's what I'm wondering. Why on earth would a Muslim want to go to Tennnessee, instead of a more diverse place?

Why do we need to ask questions like this? It's their right and they deserve to practice it without question.

Exactly this, yes.

Yes, the should have the right to live there. I'm not disputing that. I just think it's pretty ballsy.

Well, sure, you have every right to live wherever you want, but I'm just perplexed by the inclination to live in specific areas that are, well, less accommodating to minorities, to be polite. It's like a socially liberal Christian living in Saudi Arabia.
