I saw the oddest thing today, a bearded man dressed in a brown robe ranting on the steps of the NY Library on 41st and 5th avenue. I encountered a heated exchange between him and some Jewish men (wearing yamulkes). He was loud and vocal and animated, I naturally thought this guy was a fundementalist preacher debating about Jesus with some Jewish men. But I was surprised to find out he was Muslim, he was proseletyzing about Islam and the evils of Christianity and Judaism. He had a challenge to read the Bible, then read the Koran and tell him which one speaks of murder and violence.
Has anyone encountered anything like this before? I have never seen a street corner Muslim preacher.
I didn’t take him up on his challenge but I was tempted to trade him my New Testament for his Koran and do the same challenge.
