Hill Country group protesting plans for Muslim youth retreat at Presbyterian Center
by Mark J. Armstrong
A Muslim youth retreat planned for Christmas week at a Presbyterian conference center has a local Christian group up in arms.
The Muslim Youth of North America, an arm of the Islamic Society of North America, is sponsoring the retreat Dec. 19-25 at the Presbyterian Mo-Ranch Camp and Conference Center near Hunt.
According to the society's website, about 100 youths ages 12-18 are expected from around the nation to participate in "intensive leadership and spiritual development training."
Randy Simmons, a member of the Hill Country Oak Initiative, which launched an e-mail campaign protesting the retreat, said the Islamic Society has ties to terrorist organizations, and he doesn't want them meeting in Kerr County.
