Calgary Activist: Claim and Event

calgary activist: We took a stand against people who claim that they are Christians, who claim that they are Conservatives, who claim they are patriots but they are anything but, according to CTV. We know what they have done in the past, we know how much hate they have inside them against Muslims, said Saima Jamal, a Calgary activist who helped organize the event. Members of the anti-racism side say the event was a good opportunity for them to take a stand against hate. Jamal says that both events were scheduled weeks ago and she wants people to know that they are protesting the views of their opponents who claim to be holding a Christian event. Muslims and Christians and Jews and every other faith in this city stay united and we celebrate each other's faith and we celebrate each other's diversity, Jamal said. We know Christians, we love Christians. ( As reported in the news.
