Anger over decision to build mosque next to church
Residents have accused a north Melbourne Council of being insensitive and inflammatory after approving a permit for a mosque to be built next to an Assyrian Church.
Members of St Mary's Ancient Church of the East in Coolaroo say a mosque in such close proximity to their church will result in re-triggered trauma and a volatile worshiping environment.
They say their church community is made up of refugees who survived persecution as religious minorities in war torn Iraq.
