The Tulsa Metropolitan Ministry logo

By KWGS News/Hear comments from TMM Director:


Tulsa, OK –

This weekend's planned Quran burning in Florida is drawing the condemnation from religious people across the nation, including here in Tulsa.

The interim director of the Tulsa Metropolitan Ministry, The Reverend Mark Gibbens-Hickman, says the burning the Quran will not improve tolerance.He says people need not believe alike to love alike.

Hickman says the problem is not the Quran, but the people who distort the Quran.
