A Hallelujah: Clergy Comes Together To Protest US Airways' Decision To Ban All Imams From Flying 'Cos They Might Pray
Hallelujah (and hopefully, not "a cold and lonely Hallelujah" with a nod toward Leonard Cohen):
Imams, ministers and a rabbi staged a "pray-in" demonstration Monday at Reagan Washington National Airport and demanded an apology from US Airways for barring six Muslims from a Minneapolis to Phoenix flight last week.
The religious leaders called for an end to racial profiling, saying it was unacceptable in America. "These things are troubling to us," said Mahdi Bray, executive director of the Muslim American Society Freedom Foundation.
"Driving while black, flying while Muslim, traveling with a Torah or getting with Jesus."
