Caving In to Bigotry; Fla Ed.

For years, the Islamic Center of Boca Raton, Fla., served as a polling station for Palm Beach County voters.

Since at least the year 2010, citizens have cast their votes within the pastel green walls of the mosque, whether it was for a presidential primary, a municipal election or a special primary.

Last week, however, the mosque was removed as a polling site.

The decision was made by Susan Bucher, Supervisor of Elections for Palm Beach County, after she received complaints, and threats, about the use of the mosque in the upcoming Florida primary in August and general election in November.
Doesn't seem to bother those Floridan boobs that counties use churches and synagogues as polling stations.

The complainers are rooted in bigotry and fear. Promising to call in bomb threats is an exercise in terrorism.

Brickbats to Palm Beach County for caving in to (presumably) Christian terrorists.

Sad.

Really, no church or other religious institution should be used as a polling place. Schools or police stations or other government buildings, or even Post Offices. But no private locations.
