I am pleased to join several of my friends and colleagues in adding my name to a simple but straightforward statement, published in a full-page advertisement, in today’s New York Times.
It’s sponsored by the American Bible Society. It reads as follows:
“Burning the Qur’an does not illuminate the Bible.”
The ad, along with its signatories, can be viewed by clicking here.
Of course, this was in response to the planned “Burn the Qur’an Day” which was scheduled for this coming Saturday down in Gainesville, Florida.
