Rev. Soritua Nababan: Please Don’t Burn the Quran

News of a Florida church’s plans to burn Qurans on the anniversary of 9/11 has provoked outrage across the Islamic world. The Organization of the Islamic Conference has issued a special alert among its 57 member nations. The Dove World Outreach Center, an independent nondenominational church in Gainesville, has proclaimed September 11 “International Burn a Quran Day.” Several American faith groups, including the National Association of Evangelicals, have urged the church to cancel its event. Christian minorities in predominantly Muslim countries are also speaking out, asserting that the plan could further endanger their already-vulnerable communities. Watch the reaction of Rev. Soritua Nababan, a leader of the Protestant Christian Batak Church in Indonesia and one of the top Asian representatives at the World Council of Churches.
