Regina Mustafa: Differing beliefs motivate quest for interfaith harmony

Standing at a downtown Rochester streetlight wearing a black T-shirt with the word "Muslim" printed across the front and back was a first for me. I am used to being identified for my religion since I wear a headscarf, but the T-shirt brings public displays of religion to a whole new level.

Right beside me was a friend wearing another black T-shirt also with bold white letters reading "Atheist." Despite my slight nervous trembling and wishing I had brought along a comfort blanket, I knew that together we were sending a message of acceptance.

Yet, such a bold demonstration of interfaith harmony did not always resonate with those who crossed our path.

Casual dismissals of such efforts lie at the core of our continued racial, religious, economic and sexual identity disparities.
