Town Hall Tennessee held a meeting Thursday evening at the Sevierville Civic Center aimed at informing community leaders and citizens on Sharia law and the perceived threat of "political Islam."
The meeting featured guest speakers Matt Bonner, Dr. Bill Warner and John Peach. According to the speakers, Sharia law is the political implementation of the Islamic civilization.
Bonner, the southeast regional director of the Crescent Project — a group whose mission is to "reach Muslims with the Gospel of Christ" — opened up the meeting with a wealth of anecdotal evidence as to why political Islam is a threat to western culture. Bonner established a theme that was ongoing throughout the night: the speakers at the event were careful to point out that they do not view Islam solely as a religion, but also as a political doctrine; they emphasized that their speeches were not against the religion of Islam.
