The state of Tennessee is not just in the Bible Belt, it is the shiny gold buckle of the Bible Belt. "Not Welcome" chronicles the backlash against construction of a new Islamic center in Murfreesboro TN - a small Southern town with nearly 200 churches, where one mosque is one mosque too many. Rapture ready Evangelicals parade down Main Street carrying signs of fear and hate, a group sues to stop construction, arson, vandalism and explosive town meetings capture this tiny bedroom community outside of Nashville, TN - a town that has become a battlefront in the culture war in America. An up close look at this recent wave of American Islamophobia and that part of the human psyche that allows religious superstition to divide a people.
"Why should there be hunger and deprivation in any land, in any city, at any table, when man has the resources and the scientific know-how to provide all mankind with the basic necessities of life?" ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
