‘Jesus is a Muslim’ Billboards Stir Local Minister to Action
COLUMBUS (Rob E. Wells) — A group of billboards set throughout Central Ohio so offended one local minister that he says he’s taking his message to the streets this weekend.
Dave Daubenmire, of Pass the Salt Ministries, says he plans to organize a rally.
Daubenmire says he and others in his ministry were shocked to see billboards bearing “Jesus Is Muslim” and “Mohammed is in the Bible” messages.
Kenneth Tour, who practices the Islamic faith, says the signs are paid for by “Ask A Muslim.com” and are meant to strike up a conversation about religion and faith.
Tour says he became a Muslim about five years ago.
He says he believes the billboards are a good way to spark interest in his religion.
Meanwhile, Daubenmire says he hopes that other religious leaders and community members will join his rally set for 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday.
It’s set to take place at 6221 Cleveland Avenue
