In an editorial, the Daily News Journal says that the wrangling over the building of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro "was an argument about nothing that wouldn’t go away, costing Rutherford County tens of thousands in legal fees and driving a wedge into the midst of our community." District Court Judge Todd Campbell's ruling was the "right move for a local group, [and] a victory for religious groups across the country," the paper says. "The First Amendment and state Constitution are clear about the rights of religious groups to worship freely. It is time to recognize those constitutional rights."
