Muslims Join Jewish Group on National Day of Prayer Concerns

by TFN

The Council on American-Islamic Relations has joined Jews on First in calling for events on the National Day of Prayer to be inclusive of all people of faith. A 2005 report from the Texas Freedom Network Education Fund revealed that far-right groups, particularly the National Day of Prayer Task Force, had hijacked the annual day’s celebrations in communities across the country.  The Task Force and other Christian fundamentalist groups use the National Day of Prayer as an opportunity not for national unity in prayer, but for promoting their own religious beliefs over all others.
