Madison Church to Host "Islamization" Conference

Oct 31, 2011

A Madison church has agreed to host a controversial national conference on Sharia law and what organizers call the Islamization of America.

The gathering was set to meet at Nashville’s Hutton Hotel November 11, but lost that venue when the hotel owners decided that the conference’s scheduled speakers were “extremists.”

The hotel cited reports by the Anti-Defamation League and Southern Poverty Law Center about speakers Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer of the group Stop Islamization of America, adding that they have a history of controversy.

According to WKRN-TV, the Cornerstone Church in Madison has agreed to let the Sharia Awareness Action Network and the Tennessee Freedom Coalition hold their conference in the church’s sanctuary.
