Rare Common Sense: October 2002 Archives

October 11, 2002

Extremists not typical

American church leaders have criticised the Christian Right for ignoring their bonds with the Christians of the Holy Land with their uncritical support of the Israeli government and defamatory comments about Islam.

Jim Winkler, general secretary of the United Methodist Church's General Board of Church and Society, declared, President Bush often reminds the American people that intolerant words of a few militant Islamic leaders are not representative of Islam. I am here to tell the American people that the comments of Rev. Falwell and others on last Sunday's '60 Minutes' are not representative of American Christianity.
