What with the Middle East exploding, how about “pray it forward,” where we in this country show solidarity with those who have been insulted by a video made here.
We can gather in public squares, churches and synagogues to light a candle for religious tolerance, that we believe all faiths should be treated respectfully, and that although we support free speech, we abhor the ridiculous and insensitive mistreatment and denigration of Muhammad as a womanizer and child molester.
Muslims need to know that we Americans believe in freedom of religious expression as well as freedom of speech, and that we respect the beliefs of different cultures and faiths. If enough of us stood for peace here, perhaps it will help bring peace there.
