‘Love your Muslim neighbors’ is simple message of Sojourners subway ad hitting back against divisive ad

From Sojourners. This is fabulous. What could be more obvious?

Sojourners announced it will be purchasing ads in the New York City subway bearing a simple, positive message: Love Your Muslim Neighbors. This simple commitment from the Gospel of Matthew (22:39) is an important reminder of how we are to engage all of God’s children, irrespective of whatever differences may exist.

Everyone – regardless of race, religion, or creed – deserves to feel welcomed and safe when riding public transit in America. Sojourners hopes this simple message will stand in stark contrast to the anti-Muslim ads that are drawing so much attention and provide a more hopeful, peaceful, and faithful witness in New York City.
