Detroit, Mich. --- On Wednesday, Nov. 9 at noon, Detroit area faith leaders will hold a press conference at the site of Occupy Detroit to express concern about the upcoming ‘The Call: Detroit’ rally at Ford Field and announce an alternative event for people of faith to pray for Detroit in an inclusive, anti-hate and non-political way.
 
“Detroit is not challenged because of sin or demons, it is challenged because of anti- middle class and working poor political policy, we don't need a massive exorcism we need political engagement. I think it is deceptive and hateful for any minister to blame Detroit’s or the nations economic crisis on sin or the presence of Muslims. This event is not about prayer it is about right wing politics”, said D. Alexander Bullock.
Leaders from Detroit’s Christian and Muslim communities have expressed concern about ‘The Call: Detroit,’ whose leaders frequently demonize Islam and promote ‘dominionist’ theology, which advocates a takeover of government, media and business by conservative right wing Christians.
 
Who: Detroit Faith Leaders
