Letter to the Editor: InterVaristy's message skewed by article's mistake

To the editor,

There was an Interfaith Dialogue at the beginning of November, and I was one of the coordinators for the event. In the article in the Nov. 16 issue of The Lamron entitled "Interfaith Dialogue builds bridges, not walls betweed faiths" you listed me as saying:"Senior Chioma Chukwu, a coordinator from the Intervarsity Christian Fellowship (IVCF), told Mahatma Ghandi's story of seven blind men in a room with one elephant.The story went that while all could feel the elephant in different ways, all were, in fact, feeling the same thing. Thus, the discussion was held under a context of education rather than preaching, of sharing rather than arguing."I just really wanted to clarify that I did not say that. One of the leaders of MSA, the Muslim group, said that. This quote goes against what our organization and religion believes. We believe that there is only one way to God and that is Jesus Christ. The dialogue was indeed a place for us to learn about the other religions, but we do not believe that they are "feeling the same elephant." That is definately bad for my name and my group's name just because that is not what we believe.
