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.

    This is really touching – a loving message in the best christian tradition.
    I also love #myjihad hash tag on Twitter.
