Faith leaders deliver urgent message at NYC A&E Network Headquarters
Faith leaders from Harlem, Brooklyn, New Jersey, Manhattan, Staten Island and the Harlem Ebony Awakening Choir, along with the Los Angeles Faith Coalition, delivered a message to A&E CEO Paul Buccieri Thursday at A&E Network’s main offices in New York City. The leaders’ objective is to demand that A&E “cease broadcasting anti-religious programming which has caused hundreds of threats and acts of violence,” according to Harlem World Magazine. The group was in Washington D.C Wednesday, meeting with Congress members and presenting their concerns to Sam Brownback, U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for Religious Freedom.

The LA Faith Coalition stated:
“We are Baptist, we are Christians, we are Scientologists, Jews, Muslims, Sikhs, Buddhists, and many more denominations. We are family and united. And we are here to say: shame on you A&E for spreading hate, when love is what conquers all. We ask you to meet with us. If we do not hear from you, we will be forced to demand an international boycott of A&E and Disney through the power and reach of our combined faiths.”
