Invitation to Fred Grandy or Mark Uncapher to attend next Saturday’s “Creeping Shariah?” forum

There has been some question about the tone of our invitation to Fred Grandy or Mark Uncapher to attend next Saturday’s forum, “Is ‘Creeping Shariah’ a Real Threat or a Trumped Up Scare Tactic?”  That forum will be held next Saturday, September 24, from 11am to 1pm at the Wisconsin Place Community Recreation Center, at 5311 Friendship Blvd., Chevy Chase, MD 20815  (map; convenient to Friendship Heights Metro).

Here is the text of our invitation:

Dear Congressman Grandy and Mr. Uncapher,

My name is Thomas Nephew, and I’m part of a local group calling ourselves the “Montgomery County Civil Rights Coalition.”  We maintain a blog at mococivilrights.wordpress.com, and are active on various local issues that touch on civil liberties and civil rights.

Members of MCCRC have noted the recent media reports about the invitation to former Congressman Fred Grandy by the Chevy Chase Republican Women’s Club on September 24. We believe it will be constructive to hold a public airing about the topic of “Creeping Shariah.”

So we are inviting either of you (or a representative you designate) to participate in a public forum to dialogue and debate with a representative of the American Muslim community and others about this topic.This forum will be held on September 24th from 11am -1 pm, at the Wisconsin Place Community Recreation Center in Chevy Chase, MD. The flyer for this event is attached. I respectfully request your participation, and your RSVP at your earliest opportunity.

If you’re interested or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Thank you!

Thomas Nephew
