  1. THIS IS INSANE! The owner has already put signage in front of her home advertising her home as a temple. This is a residential neighborhood with very little parking to spare.

  2. Lark, again with your white flight nonsense!! This great country was founded by immigrants Yes, even white folks were immigrants to this country at one point.
