Gathering planned as alternative to visit by Franklin Graham
Rejecting recent statements by the Rev. Franklin Graham, a group of Madison religious leaders will hold an interfaith gathering at the same time the prominent Christian evangelist is scheduled to rally people at the state Capitol on Wednesday.
The alternative service, called “Neighbors in Faith,” will celebrate religious diversity and the common good, according to organizers, who criticized Graham for comments he’s made about Islam, Muslim immigrants, atheists, gay people and others.
Date: Wednesday, June 15
Time: 12 p.m. (noon)
Place: Grace Episcopal Church, 116 W. Washington Ave. (Capitol Square)
