Buffett fortune used to push interfaith mosque

Houses of worship for Christianity, Islam, Judaism on same campus in America


A key date is approaching, April 12, for the final hurdle to be cleared in the most ambitious interfaith project ever attempted – combining houses of worship for Christianity, Islam and Judaism on the same campus in the middle of America.

It’s called the Tri-Faith Initiative in Omaha, Nebraska. If it succeeds, its leaders have said they hope it will become a model for the nation and perhaps the world.

The controversial $60 million project has provoked warnings from some Christians and Jews who say the Muslim element in the Tri-Faith deal is hiding its extremist views toward Israel and support for Hamas, which is on the U.S. government’s list of foreign terrorist organizations.

The three houses of worship – a mosque with ties to groups started by the Muslim Brotherhood, a Reform synagogue and a church affiliated with the United Church of Christ – are pushing forward with the plan nonetheless.

This Sunday’s vote by the Countryside Community Church looms big. The church has plenty of cash to shower upon the project: Billionaire Warren Buffett’s daughter, Susie Buffett, is among its flock and she has contributed nearly $1 million with promises of more. A thumbs up by the church will free up more money for the construction of the participating mosque.
