Louisville Seminary Urges Support of Muslim Community in Wake of Recent Vandalism

Sep 17, 2015

In response to the act of vandalism, which was discovered Wednesday, September 16, 2015, at the Louisville Islamic Center, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary President Michael Jinkins asks the seminary community to stand in solidarity with our Muslim neighbors at this time of great disturbance.

“Recently, Rabbi Jonathan Sacks reminded the world that the Abrahamic faiths of Judaism, Islam and Christianity need to find ways to affirm our commonalities and engage in a worldwide campaign against the teaching and preaching of hate.

“It saddens us to see the face of such hatred manifest itself in our great city. There simply is no excuse for this deplorable act. I ask that we join together as people of faith to affirm what we hold in common and to celebrate our differences as gifts from God.

“On Friday, September 18, at 3 p.m., we hope members of our seminary community will join the Muslim community at the Louisville Islamic Center (4007 River Road, Louisville, Ky.) to help clean up and paint over the graffiti.

“Our prayers are for our Muslim brothers and sisters and for peace in our world of many faith traditions and cultures.”
