"I want to thank you again for...shar(ing) your important program on the True Nature of Islam with our members and friends of our church," the group leader told CAIR-GA afterward. "Everyone I have seen since our trip has praised your efforts to the skies and thanked me for bringing your enlightened, balanced point of view to our gathering. I was so happy to get such strong, positive feedback and not a single negative, especially at a time when we are all dealing with the effects of extremism on many sides.  May a more balanced and thoughtful atmosphere prevail."
