Preacher McConnell attends multi-faith summit
Firebrand evangelist Pastor James McConnell is taking part in a two-day ecumenical event bringing together Christian, Jewish and Muslim speakers with politicians and intellectuals from across the cultural spectrum.
The outspoken preacher, who hit the headlines when he described Islam as "Satanic" and "a doctrine spawned in Hell" was joined at the event last night by Sheikh Dr Muhammad Al-Hussain, Senior Fellow in Islamic Studies at the Westminster Institute, London, and Fr Patrick McCafferty, a Belfast priest.
Despite later apologising, Pastor McConnell was prosecuted for his remarks, only for a court to acquit him.
