Local Christians, Jews and Muslims are contributing to the reward money to find the man who bombed a Jacksonville mosque.

Bishop Wiley Tomlinson from New Covenant Ministries is among the local faith-based leaders who are showing support despite differences in beliefs with Jacksonville's Islamic Center. He's adding $5,000 to the reward, bringing the total to about $20,000. The Jacksonville Jewish Center's Mens Club is also offering to repair the damage caused by the potentially deadly pipe bomb that went off on May 10th.

But, as Bishop Tomlinson condemns the domestic terrorist attack against the mosque, he has also received criticism for supporting members of the Islamic faith. Yet, he still calls members of the Islamic Center his friends.
