Rob Sivulka,President of Courageous Christians United (CCU) has moved to distance himself from Steve Klein and his anti-Islamic film and has had him unvceremoniously dumped from the CCU board. Sivulka claims the film “served primarily to evoke a violent response”
We at Courageous Christians United (CCU) had no knowledge of the film “The Innocence of Muslims” or Steve Klein’s involvement in it until September 12, 2012. Steve was removed from the board of CCU as of September 14, 2012 because of his involvement in this film. As the founder of CCU, Steve was an honorary board member, but he has never been to any of our board meetings. In 2006, when I wanted to form my own non-profit corporation, Steve gave me CCU, which he was no longer using.
Steve was in no way acting on behalf of our mission organization in the production of the video. While both Steve and the film maker have a right to express their views, that doesn’t mean that we here at CCU endorse this movie as a good means to convey the truth about Islam. In fact, we find this film reprehensible and irresponsible, and serving primarily to provoke a violent response.
President, Courageous Christians United
