Middle Tenn. billboard encourages acceptance of Muslims
A self-described Christian group in Washington D.C. says it plans to encourage Murfreesboro residents to "Love Your Muslim Neighbors."
Tim King, a spokesman for Sojourners, says the billboard is slated to go up on Sept. 24. Sojourners describes itself as a Christian advocacy and education organization.
King told the Daily News Journal that the group decided to place the message in Murfreesboro after being contacted by area residents who saw a similar message on a billboard in Joplin, Mo. He said those asking for the billboard told Sojourners about the controversial mosque that was built and said they wanted to "put out a very different message."
