Reportedly Said 9/11 Was A Good Reason To Pray
Two Pentecostal preachers headed for
a convention in Baltimore forced a Continental Airlines flight to
be grounded in Buffalo (NY) last week.
The reason? Airline officials said they were talking to fellow
passengers about the 9/11 terror attacks on New York and
Washington, saying they were a good reason to pray.
"They were sincere in their beliefs and were not malicious,"
said FBI spokesman Paul Moskal in a telephone interview with
Reuters. "In the context of 9/11 it may not have been the best way
to promote their religion."
Indeed. The pilot, alerted by passengers, turned the aircraft
around and headed back to the gate. Pentecostal ministers Yohan
Heenatigala and Komal Singh, both of Canada, were questioned by the
FBI and later released and put on another flight.
