SHAFAQNA – Paul Galloway is the executive director of the American Center for Outreach, an advocacy group for civic participation of Muslims in Tennessee. A tolerant man, a man of peace and reason, Mr Galloway offered an interesting position on the recent clash of religious semantics Christians in the US have held against Muslims.
“The idea that Muslims and Christians worship different Gods is not only false, it’s dangerous,” he noted.
Last month, a tenured Wheaton College Professor— who is Christian — was suspended for stating that Allah is God. Earlier that month, a California woman assaulted a group of Muslims in public and afterward stated, “their Allah … was not of God, was of the devil.”
Also, the Friday before Christmas, all the schools in Augusta County, Va., were shut down after an Arabic calligraphy assignment mentioning that Allah was God angered parents.
