Muslims invite Arizona protester wearing "F**k Islam" shirt to service in mosque

Jason Leger, a Phoenix resident wearing one of the profanity-laced shirts, accepted an invitation to join the evening prayer inside the mosque, and said the experience changed him.

“It was something I’ve never seen before. I took my shoes off. I kneeled. I saw a bunch of peaceful people. We all got along,” Leger said. “They made me feel welcome, you know. I just think everybody’s points are getting misconstrued, saying things out of emotion, saying things they don’t believe.”

Paul Griffin, who had earlier said he didn’t care if his t-shirt was offensive, assured a small crowd of Muslims at the end of the rally that he wouldn’t wear it again.

“I promise, the next time you see me, I won’t be wearing this shirt,” he told one man while shaking his hand and smiling. “I won’t wear it again.”

Usama Shami, the president of the ICCP, invited anyone to join him and the 800 members of the mosque for a prayer.

“A lot of them, they’ve never met a Muslim, or they haven’t had interactions with Muslims,” he said. “A lot of them are filled with hate and rage. Maybe they went to websites that charged them with this hatred. So when you sit down and talk like rational people, without all these slogans, without being bigots, without bringing guns, they will find out that they’re talking to another human.”

as a secularist my biggest concern is that Christians and Muslims will work out they are basically the same and join forces to bring about a new dark age

Don't think there's a great risk of that Smile At least, not from the ones from either side who just want to believe in Heaven and otherwise get on with their lives ...

They're not the same - Muslims don't believe that Jesus was the Son of God.

Perhaps some people should go to a Christian church ...

Mind you, they'd probably be told they were being brainwashed if they said it was OK. Laughing

They're not the same - Muslims don't believe that Jesus was the Son of God.

If you're standing outside that little argument, there's really little difference.

It's a fairly important difference really. Laughing

What many non Muslims don't realise is that Muslims (preachers especially) love this kind of situation.

Islam haters make up many of the non Muslims who visit Mosques. Giving an opportunity for "Dawah".

Al'hamdu illah!

So many anonymous parties in this example! I for one have been to hundreds of Christian church services.
