Rep. Scott DesJarlais Comments on Mosque Cemetery in Rutherford County

Stream Fox 17 newscasts LIVE starting with Fox 17 This Morning at 5 am and News at 9 pm.


NASHVILLE, Tenn.-- U.S. Representative Scott DesJarlais shared his concern about a decision to allow a cemetery at a Rutherford County mosque today. 


The congressman took to his Facebook Page and posted the following: 


"Friends, I have received numerous calls over the last couple of weeks regarding the Murfreesboro mosque cemetery. Although this is a state issue, I am deeply concerned over the impact it might have on our community. Unfortunately the Tennessee Religious Freedom Act, passed by the TN General Assembly, may have played a key role in allowing this cemetery to be approved. There is a difference between legislation that would protect our religious freedoms and legislation that would allow for the circumvention of laws that other organizations comply with on a daily basis."
