Court: Residents Can’t Mention “Islam” or “Muslim” At Public Hearing on Mosque Construction; TMLC Files Federal Lawsuit

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Aug. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — In a settlement agreement, which reads more like an instrument of surrender, Bernards Township (“Township”), New Jersey officials agreed that, in addition to a $3.5 million payment to Islamic Society of Basking Ridge (“ISBR”), residents and citizens of the Township are prohibited from commenting on “Islam” or “Muslims.” at the upcoming public hearing to approve the settlement. Astonishingly, a federal judge approved the prohibition as a fully enforceable Order of the Court.

As a result of this suppression of speech, the Thomas More Law Center (“TMLC”), a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, yesterday, filed a lawsuit in the New Jersey Federal District Court on behalf of Christopher and Loretta Quick. The lawsuit was filed by TMLC affiliated New Jersey attorney, Michael Hrycak. Mr. Hrycak was assisted by TMLC staff attorney, Tyler Brooks. The TMLC is representing the Quicks without charge.

    Holy crap! Totalitarian islam really is a contagion. It turns politicians into appeasers on first contact.

      I think they are on the take. No way any sane person would encourage this ideology. Here in Canada JT, Wynne and others bend over in a moments notice without one whisper of resistance… this is not normal.

        The Saudies will buy anybody; the politicians are the easiest.

          Don’t you wish one could inspect their accounts… bet someone left that Island with a briefcase of cash…

    Let’s hope the township strips the right to vote from all infidels. If only to read the NY Times defend it .

    If they censor language I suggest the Lenny Bruce tactic of word substitution. As in, since I can’t say that word I’ll say cockroach. Or worse.

  • However does anyone expect this matter to be resolved then?

    • Alain

      They expect to force the people into silence and build the bloody mosque regardless.

      • Well, if the word “Muslim” can’t be used, build a synagogue instead.

        After all, no one was specific.
