Louisville Church To Host Quran Reading

By Sheila AshA Louisville church will host a reading of the Quran on Saturday, the 9th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.The event is in response to the planned burning of the Quran that was to take place in Florida but has been called off.Rev. Todd Eklof of the Clifton Universalist Unitarian Church says the event is being held to promote freedom of religion and equality."The gentleman in Gainsville, Florida who until very recently has been planning on burning the Quran has come out and said he would not burn the Quran if they would move this mosque in New York which we find equally as disturbing," he said.Thirty-six people will read from the Quran from 9:11 a.m. to 9:11 p.m. at the church.In addition, Interfaith Paths to Peace is also planning a special service beginning at 11:30am at Highland Baptist Church.

Rick Howlett is host of WFPL's weekly talk show, "In Conversation." Email Rick at rhowlett@lpm.org.
