Somebody removed the two hardback copies of the Quran from the interfaith chapel at Charlotte Douglas International Airport and left behind a note disparaging the Islamic holy book.
The Rev. Alice White, who discovered the theft and the note Tuesday, said Wednesday it wasn’t the first time the chapel’s inclusion of the Muslim book had caused an incident.
“Six months ago, somebody got so outraged that they put a hole in the wall,” she said. The cause of their outrage: “Because the Quran was up on the pulpit.”
White, a Christian Pentecostal minister who co-directs the chapel’s 18 volunteer chaplains, said she arrived at the chapel Tuesday about 1:30 p.m. and saw a white man in his 30s in the chapel. She said he noticed her name tag and said “Hello, Alice White.”
