Faith Shared

Christian, Muslim (Islam), Jewish, these are three major players with perhaps Buddhism fast growing. In many ways these are old established belief systems and religious systems two of which have real legitimisy one of which is cultural the other being founded on a different revelation. (Islam) But what happens if the major three are combined to speak out in one setting and "SHARE" their "FAITHS"?

A Project of Interfaith Alliance and Human Rights First

Faith Shared Service

Thank you for agreeing to be a part of Faith Shared. With your help, this project will send a strong message both here at home and around the world that Americans can come together and demonstrate respect for one another’s faiths. Pluralism and religious freedom are at the core of our democracy, and they are what have brought our two organizations together for this important work. We believe that reaffirming those basic American values will help counteract an intensified level of negative stereotypes and anti-Muslim bigotry in our recent public discourse.

Religious freedom is guaranteed to all Americans by the First Amendment to our Constitution, but for liberty to have its full impact, we must go beyond the legal deffnition and embrace its moral underpinnings. A passionate defense of human rights ensures the dignity to which everyone is entitled, a message that we send abroad and something we actively model here at home.

The law can’t force anyone to respect the Muslim community; it can only stop people from infringing on Muslims’ right to practice their faith. Taking the next step to true understanding is where you come in and where Faith Shared can make a difference. Faith Shared embraces the diversity of America’s religious landscape and oers houses of worship the opportunity to tell their congregations, “We may have different beliefs and traditions than the church, mosque or synagogue down the street, but we share a common desire to worship freely and search for answers to life’s questions through our faith.”

At the same time, by having hundreds of congregations participate in this project on the same day, we send a message to the world that Americans do respect religious differences and reject religious bigotry and the demonization of Islam or any other religion. It doesn’t mean that we don’t have disagreements, or that we are naïve about the challenges facing our country. But we will let the world know that we understand that respect for human dignity, human rights and the rule of law is the foundation of our strength and security. And more importantly, we will act accordingly.

This resource kit is your guide to planning a Faith Shared event. You will find suggested readings along with recommendations on how to incorporate this event in your worship service. Also included are fact sheets that explain the project and how to speak with media about your involvement. Keep checking faithshared. org for updates and additional resources as we get closer to the event. And, again, thank you for your important contribution to this much-needed display of respect and inclusion.

Welton Speaks on the Capitol StepsTensions around Islam in America have erupted throughout the country in the past year, leading to misconceptions, distrust and in some cases violence. News stories on the rising tide of anti-Muslim bigotry and violence abound, with graphic and often searing images of the antagonists, the protagonists and the battlegrounds where they meet. All too often, media coverage simplistically pits Muslims against would-be Qur’an burners, neglecting any substantive representation of where the majority of Americans actually stand: a shared commitment to tolerance and freedom. We are committed to ensuring that the storyline changes dramatically in 2011 by helping to create an environment of mutual understanding and respect for each other’s faith traditions.

Interfaith Alliance and Human Rights First offer the Faith Shared event as a way to engage faith leaders on the national and community levels in interfaith events intended to highlight respect among people of different faiths. Through photos, video clips and print coverage distributed around the world, we are looking to display visual images that reflect the mutual respect that is shared by so many Muslims, Christians, Jews and other Americans, standing together as a strong counterpoint to the negative images that have dominated the domestic and international news.

The Goals

This project will create opportunities across the United States for faith communities to strengthen ties with each other. We will counter the misperception, including in the Arab and Muslim worlds, that the United States is a nation defined by the widely covered images of the marginal few who would burn a Qur’an, rather than by a proud and longstanding tradition of religious freedom, tolerance and pluralism. In communities across the United States, this project will not only serve as a model for tolerance and cooperation and promote local faith leaders as champions of such, but it will also create a concrete opportunity to build and strengthen working ties between faith communities moving forward.

Will You Join Us In Faith Shared?

Faith Shared asks houses of worship across the country to organize events involving clergy reading from each other’s sacred texts. An example would be a Christian Minister, Jewish Rabbi and Muslim Imam participating in a worship service or other event. Suggested readings will be provided from the Torah, the Gospels, and the Qur’an, but communities are encouraged to choose readings that will resonate with their congregations. Involvement of members from the Muslim community is key. We will also provide suggestions on how to incorporate this program into your regular worship services. And we will assist local congregations in their media and communications efforts.

While there is a strong preference for all of the events to happen on the same day, a number of congregations held interfaith services in January and February giving us wonderful examples of how communities can come together in support and fellowship. We will be posting photos, sample programs and audio files from theses services.

Faith Shared will collect images and videos from these events to use in our efforts to spread this message of respect and understanding from America.

Now this is their plea, not ours. In fact I the author of this site would tend to condemn this activity for while the Hallmark of Christendom is that we do love both our brethren in "oneanothering" and our "neighbor" no matter the faith or religious belief we dont condone the dogma or doctrine they choose to adhere to nor do we support their gods. I do believe in Freedom of Speech and the Right to Peaceful Assembly and even so far as to EXPOSE the belief systems but not in a Christian Church as host. Do you see the difference?


Interfaith Alliance

About Interfaith Alliance


Interfaith Alliance celebrates religious freedom by championing individual rights, promoting policies that protect both religion and democracy, and uniting diverse voices to challenge extremism.




Interfaith Alliance is the only national interfaith organization dedicated to protecting the integrity of both religion and democracy in America. We stand for faith and freedom.


As religion plays an increasingly prominent role in American politics, preserving the boundary between religion and government is more vital than ever. Interfaith Alliance works to ensure that faith and freedom flourish so that individuals can worship freely or not worship at all, so they can embrace matters of personal conscience without fear of government intrusion, and so that all can live in a vibrant, healthy society.


Interfaith Alliance was created in 1994 to celebrate religious freedom and to challenge the bigotry and hatred arising from religious and political extremism infiltrating American politics. Today, Interfaith Alliance has 185,000 members across the country made up of 75 faith traditions as well as those of no faith tradition.

This is the listing of those "Faith Traditions"

This folks is Ecumenicism at its finest. Or all roads lead to Heaven. Now I DO NOT KNOW if they actually believe in all these or only allow them the freedom to express their individuality of doctrine and or dogma. Like I said I am not against free expression but to TEACH that anything beyond Scriptural Christian bounds is the WAY is Heresy. I dont support that. I will leave the linked items intact so that you the viewer may go to the individual websites. There are limits to the amount of pages I should burden any hostserver with.

Human Rights First

Our Mission


On human rights, the United States must be a beacon. Activists fighting for freedom around the globe continue to look to us for inspiration and count on us for support. Upholding human rights is not only a moral obligation; it’s a vital national interest. America is strongest when our policies and actions match our values.

Human Rights First is an independent advocacy and action organization that challenges America to live up to its ideals. We believe American leadership is essential in the struggle for human rights so we press the U.S. government and private companies to respect human rights and the rule of law. When they don’t, we step in to demand reform, accountability and justice. Around the world, we work where we can best harness American influence to secure core freedoms.

We know that it is not enough to expose and protest injustice, so we create the political environment and policy solutions necessary to ensure consistent respect for human rights.  Whether we are protecting refugees, combating torture, or defending persecuted minorities, we focus not on making a point, but on making a difference.  For over 30 years, we’ve built bipartisan coalitions and teamed up with frontline activists and lawyers to tackle issues that demand American leadership.

Human Rights First is a non-profit, nonpartisan international human rights organization based in New York and Washington D.C. To maintain our independence, we accept no government funding.

What We Do

Human Rights First is an independent advocacy organization that challenges our country to live up to its ideals. We press American institutions—including government and business—to respect human rights, seeking to close the gap between values and action. Around the world, we foster American influence to secure core freedoms through the rule of law.

(defined as what the states is legal or illegal)

Now what happens if the RULE OF LAW begins to endorse no only the free sharing of faiths but the madate of participation in "said" faiths. Under this the Christian must bow down to the idol. How far might be to far and how long till the discrimination of God truly takes hold in these United States?

Think about it.
