Voters Reject Muslim Cemetery

Residents of a town near Quebec City voted Sunday to reject a plan to establish the region’s first Muslim cemetery by a vote of 19 to 16.

Voters were deciding whether or not to allow a zoning change for the proposed site in Saint-Apollinaire, 35 kilometres southwest of Quebec City.

The plan for the cemetery was developed after January’s deadly mosque shooting, but the issue was sent to a referendum after enough people came forward to oppose the project.

    “We object due to our sympathy for the muslims and their being unaware up to now that that area was used as a pork waste and lard disposal ground in the past.”

    Islam makes non-muslims puke. This is the normal reaction shared by the overwhelming majority of moral, ethical people. Somebody should write an article about that………

    Now we need to keep our fingers crossed that politicians don’t override the will of the people like they usually do when it comes to Islam.

    Too bad it was just a Muslim cemetery they rejected. Wish we could simply reject Muslims!!!
