CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ) director said Christians who hosted the 'dialogue dinner' with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad have identified themselves as appeasers of the wicked.
The dinner, held Thursday night at New York's Grand Hyatt Hotel, was jointly hosted by Mennonites, Quakers and the World Council of Churches.
"While we welcome efforts to de-radicalize religious perceptions and create an atmosphere of tolerance and respect for our differences, it is outrageous that the main guest at this dinner is someone who so thoroughly mocks and loathes these valued ideals," Rev. Malcom Hedding, executive director of the ICEJ said.
"We cannot fathom why his Christian hosts would debase their own faith so shamelessly by honoring him at this occasion," he said. "These Christian leaders will always be associated with the appeasement of wickedness," he said.
The ICEJ presented a petition to U.N. Secretary General Ban ki-Moon, signed by 55,000 Christians from 128 countries, calling on the U.N. to issue an indictment of Ahmadinejad on the grounds of incitement to genocide.
