        Exploring Religious America | Religion & Ethics Newsweekly

        This video profiles a small community in an Atlanta, Georgia suburb where religious tolerance is being put to the test. The video, from Religion & Ethics Newsweekly, reports on what happened when Muslims in Lawrenceville, Georgia requested permission to create an Islamic cemetery on land they purchased that is located across the street from a Methodist church and cemetery. The Muslim group's willingness to compromise on some traditional burial practices in order to satisfy neighborhood objections illustrates the kinds of accommodations religious newcomers often must make in adjusting to new surroundings.
