Farrakhan: World at war because of religious division

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan stressed religious unity Sunday during his final major speech, saying the world is at war because Christians, Muslims and people of other faiths are divided.

 

The 73-year-old Farrakhan told the thousands at Detroit's Ford Field that Jesus Christ and the Prophet Muhammad would embrace each other with love if they were on the stage behind him. "Our lips are full of praise, but our hearts are far removed from the prophets we all claim," He said. "That's why the world is in the shape that it's in." (AP)
