It sounds so nice, so brimming with hope and cheer: â€œChristians will join with more than 35,000 Muslims for fellowship and conversation.â€ Thus says the National Council of Churchesâ€™ (NCC) announcement that its Interfaith Relations office will sponsor an Ecumenical Study Seminar for â€œreflecting and learning togetherâ€ at the 44th annual convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), which will be held in Rosemont, Illinois at the end of August. (UNBELIEVABLE)
You may reasonably ask, of course, exactly what ISNA is. Could it possibly be, as the foregoing announcement seems to imply, a group of genuinely moderate Muslims that finally has stepped forward to collaborate with a Christian organization in a spirit of mutual acceptance and respect?
Not on your life.
