Share a Pulpit?

This is an interesting read: 

I guess the questions I would ask include:

Is there any circumstance in which a pulpit from which truth is spoken should be allowed to be shared with a false teacher?
Is Islamaphobia a true 'phobia' (a persistent, irrational fear of a specific object, activity, or situation that leads to a compelling desire to avoid it.  - definition of phobia, emphasis mine) being irrational and not based in reality, or is there a basis in the actions of the religion, and a complete lack of condemnation of those actions by the leaders of that religion?
Is there a difference between respecting a false religion and it's adherents, and respecting individuals in spite of their following a false religion?
There are many other questions which this article raises. The ultimate question I think we need to consider is how do we show love to teachers of false religions while at the same time condemning their false teaching?

  1. maybe instead of sharing the pulpit, we should be opening our doors to Bible Studies in which they can argue their false religion, but were we can correct them... still showing the love as well as leading them on the right path
