A Superior Court jury on Monday awarded $575,000 in damages to a man who sued several fellow members of a religious organization, claiming that they falsely accused him of mishandling the group's funds. Anaheim resident Adnan Khatib, 56, a former board member of the Islamic Society of Orange County, claimed in his lawsuit that three members of the organization--Khizar Malik, Iqbal Mahmood and Maqbool Chaudhry--wrote and distributed a letter in February, 1987, that defamed his character.

Pastor Gregory L. Waybright struggled from the pulpit Sunday to reconcile the laws of God with the laws of man. Though he wanted his church "to be a welcoming and loving house," he told worshipers at Lake Avenue Church in Pasadena, the California Supreme Court's decision last week to legalize gay marriage in California "is a contradiction of what God's word says."

I thoroughly enjoyed reading "Call of Mecca: A Rising Response" by Mathis Chazanov (Metro, July 3). Especially did I like the words of the director of the Islamic Society of Orange County who said, "My whole concern is to see that the whole of humanity turns toward the Creator and lives with the values of purity, honesty, and truth, not just concerning themselves with making more money and having more fun."

We strongly deplore the statement attributed to Louis Farrakhan ("Farrakhan 'Cavorting With Dictators,' U.S. Official Says," Feb. 15). It was reported that he said, "God will destroy America by the hands of Muslims." This statement is not only anti-American, it is also anti-Islamic. It will serve those who are against Islam as well as those who are against America. If this is what Farrakhan said, then let him know that we Muslims of America condemn this statement in the strongest terms.
