Over 50 U.S. Churches to hold Qur’an Readings

From Jihad Watch. The Interfaith Alliance and Human Rights First are co-sponsoring an initiative to have Christians invite Muslims to churches to read from their sacred texts this June 26. Tad Stahnke, director of policy and programs for Human Rights First, planned this initiative to counter anti-Muslim bigotry. As he put it;

We want to send a message to the world, that Americans do respect religious differences and reject religious bigotry and the demonization of Islam or any other religion.

And, the Rev. Welton Gaddy  of the Interfaith Alliance had this to say;

As a Christian minister who is a pastor in a local congregation, it is important to me for our nation and our world to know that not all Christians promote hate, attack religions different from their own and seek to desecrate the scripture of others,

I wish these people would take some time off from their ritual self-flagellation and take a look at what’s really going on around the world. The biggest examples of religious intolerance and persecution do not come from Christians attacking Muslims, but Muslims persecuting Christians, Muslims persecuting Jews, Muslims persecuting Baha’is, and Muslims persecuting anyone who isn’t Muslim. Not the mention Muslims persecuting rival sects of Islam.
