In "The Factor" "Follow-Up" Segment tonight, a clash of religions in the tsunami relief zone.
On January 12, Jerry Falwell appealed for tsunami aid in an e-mail to the Moral Majority and Liberty Alliance Members.
The e-mail said in part, "We will be delivering 80 tons of rice plus medical supplies. Relief efforts are being organized using hundreds of local Christian workers. In addition, we will be presenting the gospel to tens of thousands of persons through distribution of gospel tracts written in the native languages of the area."
That has angered some Muslims.
Joining us now from Lynchburg, Virginia, is the Reverend Jerry Falwell.
And here in the studio, Nihad Awad, the executive director of the Center (sic) on American-Islamic Relations.
All right. So what's the beef here? You know that Reverend Falwell and a lot of evangelical Christians go out and try to convert people as part of their mission. What's the problem?
NIHAD AWAD, C.A.I.R. EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR: Well, first of all, thank you for having me.
O'REILLY: My pleasure.
