A group of interfaith religious leaders - including Christian, Muslim and Jewish – met yesterday in downtown Columbus to repudiate anti-Muslim remarks by GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump.

"Love will win over hate every time," Ahrens said. "So our message as Christians, Jewish and Muslims  leaders today was our communities of faith are coming together with love to prevail over hate."
