New Exhibit Brings Together Three Faiths

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – In stark contrast to the acrimonious Lower Manhattan Islamic cultural center controversy, a new exhibit in Midtown is intended to bridge divides and foster good relations among religions.

LISTEN: WCBS 880’s Sean Adams reports

Sacred texts, ancient manuscripts – centuries-old, embossed with gold, illuminated, and illustrated, holy words on vellum, yellowed with age.

The words of three religions – Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are now side-by-side at the New York Public Library.

Library president Dr. Paul LeClerc says in a world of strife, here we see common bonds and shared traditions.

“There’s Abraham himself. There is the whole notion of revelation. There is the whole phenomenon of the prophets,” LeClerc said to WCBS 880 reporter Sean Adams.

This free exhibit – called “Three Faiths” – from the library’s own collection is sponsored, in part, by the Coexist Foundation.

The foundation’s director, James Kidner, says, “It’s got a fantastic, inspirational theme running through it, which is the capacity over the years of faiths to coexist with one another.”

The exhibit is at the D. Samuel and Jeane H. Gottesman Exhibition Hall in the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building (5th Avenue at 42nd Street).

“Three Faiths” runs from October 22, 2010 to February February 27, 2011.

    And one of those religions will happily exterminate the other two. Or did the libturds forget about the destruction of the Buddhist caves in the Middle East?

    Here’s a hint to you air heads who love the disease call Islam: if you have to constantly print a false picture to prove your point, you have NO point.

    FACT: Everywhere where there are mu-Slimes, sh-!t happens.

    China — sh-!t happens
    (suicide bombers that kill little children and run amok with metal pipes in the streets)

    India — sh-!t happens
    (mu-slimes burned 100s of hindus alive in packed trains and burned villagers alive while they slept)

    Middle East — sh-!t happens
    (suicide bombers that kill little children)

    Russia — sh-!t happens
    (suicide bombers that kill women and children in crowded theaters)

    South East Asia — sh-!t happens
    (mu-slime thugs who kidnap teachers, school children, nurses, priests for ransom, than murder them all)

    Europe — sh-!t happens
    (suicide bombers that kill little children)

    USA — 9/11 happened

    Goes to reason, no mu-slimes, no sh-!t.
    All these camel turds understand is violence and lies anyway. I say we oblige them by killing them all and than lie about how sorry we are.

    Islam. It’s a disease. And like any other infestations of boils, pox and pestilence, it should be eradicated. You don’t talk to diseases. You eradicate them like you did polio.

    And some bleeding heart imbecile here will post that it’s just a few “radical” individuals that are murderous, just like any other society. But than conveniently forgetting about the Fact that it happens worldwide and by a LOT MORE than just a few individuals. And they also continues to blank out of their empty heads the worldwide mu-slime jubilee celebrations as people burned on 9/11.
