Mr. Tom Osborne will present a class for Christians about Christianity and Islam:
- What Christians need to know about Islam
- The similarities and differences between the two faiths
- Islam in America
Mr. Osborne's interest in Islam began as a member of the LAPD, when it became involved in a 5 1/2hr gun battle with the Black Panthers in 1969. The Black Panthers were the first militant or radical offshoot of the Nation of Islam. He later studied Islam in Graduate School and has since attended many courses and programs on the subject. As an acknowledged authority he has been giving classes and presentations on Islam and Islmic Jihad for the past 9 years.
