KENNESAW, Ga. (WXIA) – Before a packed meeting Monday evening, the Kennesaw City Council tabled a vote on a proposal that would allow an Islamic worship center to open in the middle of a shopping center, Kennesaw Commons, on Jiles Road near U.S. 41.

The plan drew sharp debate over both zoning and Islam itself.

Supporters said the permit they are seeking would only be for two years, while they find a permanent location for the worship center. The group’s application says they would hold daily prayers five times a day — involving about ten people each time — as well as a larger and longer worship service each Friday afternoon involving 60 to 80 people.

Opponents argued that a place of worship, no matter the religion, has no place in a retail strip mall. Some expressed opposition to the presence of Muslims, period, saying the worship center in Kennesaw “will endanger our freedom.”
