Flora O’Brien: Same God for all

Regarding the Jan. 16 news article “ Duke reverses on Muslim prayer”: May I be so bold as to correct the illustrious Franklin Graham regarding the proposed Muslim call to prayer from the Duke bell tower.

The Muslim God is not “a different god.” He is the God of Abraham, the same God worshiped by Jews and Christians.

During the 1990s, I was in Casablanca on a medical mission. There were windows in the operating room, and we could hear the adhan several times a day. It was beautiful, of course, but it served to remind us of our humanitarian purpose, that our one God commanded us to love Him by loving one another.
