Colorado Love Counters Anti-Islam Ads

Many Christian and Jewish organizations have already expressed solidarity with Muslims by hanging pro-Muslim posters next to the provocative ads in New York to condemn intolerance and celebrate the city’s diversity.

Jacobs’ Rabbis for Human Rights - North America and the group Sojourners, led by the Christian author and social-justice advocate Jim Wallis, unveiled their campaigns last October.

The ad by Rabbis for Human Rights says, "In the choice between love and hate, choose love. Help stop bigotry against our Muslim neighbors."

The Sojourners ad says, "Love your Muslim neighbors."

Another Christian group, United Methodist Women, an affiliate of the United Methodist Church, has placed similar ads in the same 10 Manhattan stations where the anti-jihad appears.
