Unless they are worshipping cars, or unless their rites include the heavy parking of cars on streets, the religious order will have to comply with local parking regulations.
Where was the Thomas More Center when the Mormons in Virginia were fighting this issue? (Silly question -- the Thomas More Center probably didn't exist prior to 1983.)
There are safety and environmental concerns. This is an old zoning issue. Are there special conditions for this case that might change the outcome?

The Thomas More Law Center is filing suit against a Michigan municipality for demanding that a religious order apply for a zoning variance because of all the cars parked at and around their facility. The TMLC says this violates the RLUIPA. Thoughts?
