Dove World Outreach Center Church And Burning Of The Qur'an

EDM number 700 in 2010-12, proposed by Greg Mulholland on 08/09/2010.
Categorised under the topics of Religion and faith communities and Religious discrimination.

That this House condemns the outrageous and disgraceful proposal by the Dove World Outreach Center Evangelical church in Gainsville, Florida to hold a burn the Koran day; believes the event to be one that will fill all right-thinking, tolerant people of all faiths and none with utter disgust; also believes that holding the event on the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks is highly disrespectful including to 9/11 victims and their families, which included Muslims as well as people of other faiths and none; is appalled by the Dove World Outreach Center's ignorance of the beliefs and values of Islam and bythis despicable attack on its faith andsacred text; calls on all true Christian churches to condemn this unacceptable and provocative act of religious hatred, remembering that both Christianity and Islam have the same Abrahamic roots; and further calls on the Government to express its condemnation of the event and support any actions taken by the American administration in reaction to the event and help to prevent a potential violent backlash for troops in Afghanistan.

This motion has been signed by a total of 24 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
