On Second Thought For Monday, August 29, 2016

Atlanta’s new soccer team - Atlanta United FC – may not have a head coach yet, but it has tons of fans. The team has already set a new record for the most season tickets sold by an expansion team. We speak with Atlanta United Team President Darren Eales and Tara Goodwin-Rufus, the Director of Events at Terminus Legion, about the new team and soccer’s growing popularity in the South. Newton County, Georgia made headlines this month after county officials issued a temporary moratorium which halted a Georgia imam’s plans to build a mosque and cemetery. Imam Mohammad Islam says he’s been invited by faith-based leaders and county officials to talk with residents about his faith. We hear reaction from residents of Newton County and talk with Atlanta attorney Edward Ahmed Mitchell. Mitchell is the executive Georgia chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, and he says the county is violating Islam’s constitutional rights with the moratorium. Then, we look back on our conversation

Islamic Community Leader: Moratorium On Mosque, Cemetery Unconstitutional

Officials in Newton County have blocked construction of a cemetery in the Atlanta suburb of Doraville. The imam behind the project, Mohammad Islam, said it's too costly to bury members of his congregation in the existing cemetery miles away. That's why he wants to create one in nearby Newton County and have an adjoining mosque where people can pray. The U.S. Justice Department is reviewing the matter. We talk about the case with Atlanta attorney Edward Ahmed Mitchell, who is the executive director of the Georgia chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Then, we look back on our conversation with Imam Mohammed Jamal Daoud of Augusta about his outreach to educate the public about Islam.
