MURFREESBORO, Tenn.  — Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain opposes a planned Tennessee mosque that has been the subject of protests and legal challenges.

Cain told reporters Thursday after a campaign rally on the Murfreesboro courthouse square that he doesn't consider the facility an "innocent mosque."

According to Cain, the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro would represent "another way to gradually sneak Shariah law into our laws."

The new mosque has been the subject of protests and counterprotests in the city about 35 miles southeast of Nashville.

A county judge ruled in May that the mosque construction does not harm the residents who sued to try to stop it, but he allowed them to move forward on claims the county violated an open meetings law in approving it.
