Although the event was marked by inflammatory messages and a tangible divide between the two sides, it wasn’t without some reconciliation.
Jason Leger, a Phoenix resident wearing one of the profanity-laced shirts, accepted an invitation to join the evening prayer inside the mosque, and said the experience changed him.
“It was something I’ve never seen before. I took my shoes off. I kneeled. I saw a bunch of peaceful people. We all got along,” Leger said. “They made me feel welcome, you know. I just think everybody’s points are getting misconstrued, saying things out of emotion, saying things they don’t believe.”
Paul Griffin, who had earlier said he didn’t care if his t-shirt was offensive, assured a small crowd of Muslims at the end of the rally that he wouldn’t wear it again.
“I promise, the next time you see me, I won’t be wearing this shirt,” he told one man while shaking his hand and smiling. “I won’t wear it again.”

Sounds like a good idea.
Send invites to local Mosques and it could really show the world where everyone stands.
No more "they're just bigots"...
No more "they secretly support it"...
All come together and work as a team.

Fantastic. I have had the opportunity to join in with some Muslims in prayer.And it is not the Muslims we are against.It is the radical faction of Islam that poses an issue.The Quran and the Old Testament are virtually the same (for the most part) and both are a religion of peace.
