Religious Groups Come Together After Deadly Afghanistan Protests
Pastor Terry Jones believes that his words did not cause this deadly protest in Afghanistan but religious leaders in our community disagree.
Despite differences in opinion, several faiths have come together united in loving opposition.
But in times of struggle, in death and in heartache, one principle prevails, the principle of prayer.
Religious leaders in Gainesville will once again come together to combat Terry Jone's message against Islam with one of tolerance.
At the same time, some condemned Jones. Rev. Milford Lewis Griner wrote, "The blood of all those lost lives are on the hands of Pastor Terry Jones because of his decision. He should have known what the response would be once the burning became known. No wonder his church is down to only four or five members. Pastor Jones gives great meaning to the term, 'the blind leading the blind.'"
