My guess is that false teacher and Muslim apologist Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie can’t wait to mock God by reading the Koran in his “church.” After all, he thinks we have as much to learn from Islam as they do from us (even though they don’t think they have anything to learn from us).

Leaders of the two Washington-based groups said the event hopes to demonstrate respect for Islam in the wake of Quran burnings in recent months.“More than 50 churches in 26 states already have committed to the initiative, including the Washington National Cathedral.“Tad Stahnke, director of policy and programs for Human Rights First [said] “that Americans do respect religious differences and reject religious bigotry and the demonization of Islam or any other religion’.”(Adelle Banks, “Pulpit pals: Christians, Jews, Muslims plan shared worship,” Religion News Service, May 17 2011).
