A Bloomfield church canceled an anti-Muslim event scheduled for Wednesday’s 9/11 anniversary after facing condemnation from Michigan representatives and organizations.
Bloomfield Hills Baptist Church announced in a one-sentence email that it will cancel the two-day “9/11 forgotten? Is Michigan surrendering to Islam?” event that was originally scheduled for Wednesday, September 11, 2019 and Thursday, September 12, 2019.
The event was slated to host 2 speakers, who would address topics like “How the interfaith movement is sabotaging America and the church” and “How Islam is destroying America from within.”
The pastor of the church, Donald McKay had defended the event saying that “Islam is a growing threat in the United States of America,” and that while he could not speak for his church, “we don’t hate Muslims, we hate the ideology they are identified with.”
“I am an Islamophobe, I wear that badge proudly,”
– Donald McKay, Bloomfield Hills Baptist Church
The event quickly gained attention from political leaders and organizations in Michigan, who condemned the discussion and called for its cancelation.
