International Have a Meal with a Muslim Day

Posted by spritzophrenia on September 7, 2010

Ironically, I’ve just written a post about how we need to talk to each other if we want less religious conflict. I want to share this:

In response to the “Burn the Quran Day” Florida pastor, I’ve decided to promote a counter day:

The First International Have a Meal with a Muslim Day

Or coffee.

Initiate dialogues, not bonfires.

And so The First International Have a Meal with a Muslim Day is hereby declared for the following date:

Friday, September 17, 2010.

Spread the word, find a Muslim, and invite him or her out for some coffee or a bite to eat and a chat (breakfast, lunch, or dinner) on September 17th.

Tell him or her that you’re doing it for The First International Have a Meal with a Muslim Day—a day designed to open up human conversations between Muslim and non-Muslim neighbors.

The rules: eat and drink what you want and talk about what you want.
