Robert Spencer, an anti-Islam blogger and author who was recently banned from the United Kingdom for his alleged association with hate groups, will speak at a symposium at Eastern Michigan University Saturday, according to the Detroit Free Press.
‘Is Islam a Religion of Peace?’ will be hosted by Ave Maria Radio, an Ann Arbor-based Catholic radio station. The event, which will be held in the EMU Student Center, will also feature pro-Muslim speakers.
The symposium will conclude with a Mass led by Lansing Catholic bishop Earl Boyea.
According to the Detroit Free Press, EMU released a statement saying the university is not financially supporting, sponsoring or advertising the event.
