Although this looks like a good move, it will not ultimately prevent the completion or use of the Mosque unfortunately. Via Atlas Shrugs:
Here's the latest on the construction of the Islamic supremacist mega-mosque in bucolic Murfreesboro, TN. Freedom fighters won a partial victory yesterday when Rutherford County Chancellor Robert Corlew granted an injunction against the county, to stop them from issuing an Occupancy Permit for the mosque. This means that even when the building has been completed, the Muslims cannot occupy it without the permit. Although the mosque will most likely be completely constructed by the end of June, without the Occupany Permit the Muslims cannot use it.
Atlas reader Mary explains: "What the attorneys did yesterday was a checkmate to the construction continuing and the Planning officials threatening an appeal, which will take a minimum of 6 months. The mosque will sit empty for 6 months until whenever, depending on the appeals process, if they take that route. There is a meeting tonight with the County commissioners, who may tell the Planning commissioners they should not appeal and just take it back through zoning the right way, like they should have from the start."

Here is a news report on the latest approval granted to the monster mosque proposed in Henrico County, Virginia. As I reported here yesterday, this is "another monster-mosque in a small quiet area where the local people are fighting for the integrity, safety, peace and aesthetic of their town. The cacophony of traffic, noise, parking etc. would be utterly disruptive. It is time to repeal RLUIPA. It has long been abused by Islamic supremacist groups to construct beachheads, mega mosques tied to jihadist groups in small tiny neighborhoods."

These folks get it.
The St. Anthony City Council has voted down a conditional use permit that would have allowed a former Medtronic building to be used for an Islamic center.
Tuesday evening’s 4-1 vote against the permit came after a roughly two and a half hour hearing that drew nearly 100 people, most of them against the project.
The Abu-Huraira Islamic Center had requested a conditional use permit that would have allowed them to move into the first floor of the former Medtronic building, located off of Old Highway 8. The building is currently zoned light industrial and city code only lets places of worship exist in residential areas.
The city issued a four-month moratorium to study the zoning issue, prompting the Council on American Islamic Relations to accuse the council of intentionally slowing the process due to community opposition.
City officials say it is strictly a zoning issue because keeping the property as industrial would generate more taxes for the city.
Ahead of Tuesday’s hearing, an attorney for the Islamic center said the group could file a lawsuit against the city for discrimination if the permit isn’t approved.
The permit had previously been approved by the city’s Planning Commission.
