Do you support the practice of cities using local zoning ordinance and taxes to keep practitioners of non-mainstream faiths and cultures out of business?
And an example from one of the links in that article, about a town that decided all buidlings which contain "occult arts" ( in most places, aka as practitioners of any religion that isn't Abrahamic) can only be opened in the same neighborhood as strip clubs and adult toy stores, may not be located near schools, and can only be open for limited hours each day:
Many non-Abrahamic religions have divination rituals. Should someone be required to pay thousands for a paper trail "proving" their faith before they are allowed to practice it?Answer Question

This seems very discriminatory and unfair. I wonder, too, how they define "occult". According to Freedictionary.com, an occult is "of, relating to, or dealing with supernatural influences, agencies, or phenomena." This defines practically every religion, so by their argument, churches should also be banned to red-light districts.
