"This is not "hate mail. I don't hate you, and I don't hate Muslims. [But] any effort by a Muslim organization to align themselves with Christians has nothing at all to do with a sense of common faith or building bridges, but rather everything to do with co-opting uninformed Christians as a credible shieldfor their indefensible ideology. It's like a pedophile joining the Boy Scouts."Yes, this is what we're up against, people. And yet today we lit the second Advent candle -- so now we have both Hope and Peace shining in the darkness of a world clearly in desperate need of both. So Hope for healing and work for Peace. And pray for the people who send us this kind of polemic -- that they be healed of the fear that blinds them to the neighbor God loves just as much as God loves them.
