Dominionist church cancels interfaith Thanksgiving celebration

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]ad_kay)

Leaders of Hyde Park Baptist Church in Austin canceled an organization's reservations for an interfaith Thanksgiving celebration, leaving Austin Area Interreligious Ministries only four days to find a new venue. The reason? Church leaders suddenly realized that the interfaith celebration would include non-Christians, including--gasp! Muslims. Fortunately, a Jewish congregation has opened their doors, so the event will be held as planned. The local paper has covered the the church's rude behavior, ensuring that tens of thousands of people are going to know exactly the kind of bigoted xenophobes that lurk at Hyde Park.

Church rejects interfaith service on its property

If you live in the Austin area: the event will be held at Congregation Beth Israel, 3901 Shoal Creek Blvd., on Sunday, November 18th at 4:00pm. Given the publicity, I'm guessing it will be packed.
