Last year, Harry Knox, Director of the Religion and Faith Program at the Human Rights Campaign, was appointed to President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships, and subsequently drew criticism from Catholics for referring to the Pope and some Catholic bishops as “discredited leaders.” Below is a debate Dr. Brown had with him in 2008.
Fifty thousand participants were expected for the Islam on Capitol Hill event in Washington D.C. on September 25th. Roughly three thousand showed up. As we reported prior to the event, a small group of Jesus followers from North Carolina were also there to give away DVDs documenting the conversion to Christianity of different Muslims thanks in part to dreams and visions of Jesus they had experienced. The leader of this outreach, evangelist Fabian Grech, recounted their experience at the event:
We split up in small teams and were strategically located in different places. The main place where they were all praying (in front of the Capitol) only had 2 exits at the back. So we had a couple teams at both exits. We followed the strategies that God gave us: to go to them with love, look them in the eyes, show them value and put the the DVD “More Than Dreams (www.morethandreams.org – testimonies of Muslims get saved by Jesus visiting them in dreams) in their hands to take it home with them. When they asked me what it was about, I told them it was a DVD of dreams Muslims are having in different countries. Quite a few were excited to take it and some even asked me for more to give to their friends. I am still counting how many DVDs we have left, but I think we gave out about 1200 DVDs – which means about 1 out of every 3 took that powerful DVD home.
