I found this article to be highly amusing.
Church rejects interfaith service on its property
Hyde Park Baptist says it didn't realize Muslims were leading annual Thanksgiving event.
Austin Area Interreligious Ministries, the city's largest interfaith organization, announced Thursday that its annual Thanksgiving celebration Sunday
had to be moved because Hyde Park Baptist Church objected to non-Christians worshipping on its property.
The group learned Wednesday that the rental space at the church-owned Quarries property in North Austin was no longer available because Hyde Park
leaders had discovered that non-Christians, Muslims in particular, would be practicing their faith there. The event, now in its 23rd year, invites
Jews, Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Bahais and others to worship together.
"Although individuals from all faiths are welcome to worship with us at Hyde Park Baptist Church, the church cannot provide space for the practice of
these non-Christian religions on church property," the statement said. "Hyde Park Baptist Church hopes that the AAIM and the community of faith will
understand and be tolerant of our church's beliefs that have resulted in this decision."Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
The article continues on to say that eventually the largest synagogue in the area, the Congregation Beth Israel offered to host the celebration.
Now that's showing tolerance. Big up to the Jews for acting more Christian than the Christians
