This Makes Me Sick…

Apparently Dove World Outreach Center in Gainsville, FL is planning a “Burn the Qur’an Day” on 9/11/2010.  This “church” worships about 50 people weekly is organizing this event “”in remembrance of the fallen victims of 9/11 and to stand against the evil of Islam. Islam is of the devil!”

Yeah, like that will really solve any problem…seriously…this church needs to rethink this and I’m glad that some Evangelical leaders have called them out on this.

The National Association for Evangelicals released a statement Thursday urging the church, which averages 50 attendees each Sunday, to call off the event.

I really hope this doesn’t happen.  Christianity is about the Good News of Christ’s death and resurrection for the forgiveness of sin…not spreading fear and hate.

  1. Watch the papers–I am sure there will be a backlash. What ignorant fools to think this kind of thing will achieve any good or bring glory to God.

  2. I’ve added this blog to my blogroll. I think you’ll appreciate where it is? You seem to post more here than your Clashing Cultures blog. I wonder if the church will actually follow through with this. I thought I saw they might be getting cold feet. But it will show the contrast between these extreme Christians and extreme Muslims, because the “extreme” Muslims will be issuing fatwas and calling for heads to be cut off.
