Combatting Religious Bigotry

People around the world need to know that there are responsible people of faith in the United States "who understand and appreciate and respect Islam," says the Rev. Dr. Katharine Henderson, president of Auburn Theological Seminary. The recent Qur'an burning, as horrible as it was, gives people in interfaith work the opportunity to come together and to have "the conversation that we haven't had since 9/11," she says. The Prepare New York coalition is planning 500 interfaith "coffee conversations" to discuss how Americans live with differences, and to tap into the collective impact of working together "as justice-minded people."
