On May 8, 2003 The New York Times reported that "Evangelical leaders meeting in Washington denounce anti-Islam remarks made in last year by leaders of their own movement, including Rev Franklin Graham, Rev Jerry Falwell and Rev Jerry Vines; propose new guidelines for churches to follow in relating to Muslims; affirm their commitment to proselytizing and accuse mainline Protestants and groups like World Council of Churches of holding 'naive' dialogue sessions with Muslims that minimize theological and political differences."
