It's Not Getting Any Better, Is It?

Two local mayors are boycotting an annual mayors' prayer breakfast. "Why?" you might ask. One of the mayors invited a rabbi and an imam to pray. When the Protestant group that organizes the breakfast heard, they called up the rabbi and the imam and uninvited them.

In a time when we're struggling to defend ourselves from religious extremists, such a gesture seems more part of the problem than the solution. Perhaps the olive branch would be better than the back-handed slap. Apparently those fellows aren't familiar with John 13:35.
