Murfreesboro Mosque Opens!

The Nashville Tennessean today reported that the Islamic Mosque in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, finally opened this past Saturday. It took a long while to get it done, but it is finally complete and open for services. Ultimately, it took a federal district court order to get it open, and the issue concerning the continuing viability of the use of the Murfreesboro Post as the newspaper of record for notices of County meetings is still suspect as a result of the local court ruling. The last I had heard, the County had appealed that decision and I guess we will get a resolution from the Tennessee Court of Appeals.


  1. Judge Corlew NEVER ruled that The Murfreesboro Post was not a newspaper of general circulation. He ruled that multiple media outlets should've been used because of the totality of the circumstances - something that is not required by law.

  2. Thanks, you are correct. I shouldn't have tried to remember the holding without re-reading the opinion.
