Mega Mosque Plans Target America's Heartland
by Erick Stakelbeck
The proposed mega-mosque at Ground Zero has sparked outrage among many Americans. But far from the bright lights of Manhattan, there is another mosque firestorm brewing.
CBN News recently visited one Tennessee town where locals are voicing concerns about their new "neighbor" - a multi-million dollar Islamic center. It's just one of several such projects planned nationwide.
Middle Tennessee is often referred to as the "buckle" of the Bible Belt. For cities and towns there like Murfreesboro -- about 30 miles south of Nashville -- it's still about God and country.
But some residents of Murfreesboro believe that that all-American feel may soon disappear, thanks to plans to build a huge Islamic center in their backyard.
