Speaking at a predominantly white seminary located in a neighborhood populated mainly by southern Asians (not long after 9/11/2001):

I said, “There are verses in the Bible that can be used to justify genocide. Not only can they be potentially used to justify genocide, they have been used to do so on many occasions. … Should I be worried if I’m a Muslim or Hindu person living outside your walls?” And there was this moment of silence, and then this student stood up … and he held up his Bible and he said, “If the word of God says to commit genocide, it’s a holy genocide and I will defend it with my life.”
