The Not In Our Town Movement in Mclean County says enough with the anti-Muslim rhetoric already. Not In Our Town is sponsoring an interfaith community solidarity event. Reverend Kelley Becker of First Christian Church in Bloomington says God loves and accepts everyone of all faiths.

Becker says it is troubling to her that people are using fear to further political campaigns.

She says stereotyping of groups such as Muslims is not acceptable.

The candle light event to embrace freedom of religion and expression in the U.S. will be at the old courthouse in downtown Bloomington on Wednesday at 6 p.m.

Becker says she hopes the event will also be an opportunity for individuals of all faiths to engage in dialog with each other.
