Des Plaines Library Stuck In Anti-Islam Tiff

“A controversial group warning about the dangers of radical Islam in America has rankled local religious organizations—who want the Des Plaines Public Library to ban the group from meeting. Des Plaines for ACT! formed last fall. The group is a local chapter of ACT! For America. ACT! bills itself as a grassroots organization dedicated to security and terrorism by speaking out against Islamic extremists. The Southern Poverty Law Center calls them a hate group. Their founder, Brigitte Gabriel, has been quoted as saying of Muslims, “They have no soul. They are dead set on killing and destruction.” But for Des Plaines resident Sara Schmidt, ACT! is not about hate, it’s about information.” (via )
