Funeral Service for Prof. Richard T. Antoun at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Binghamton on Friday, December 11. Calling hours at 11:30 A.M. and funeral service at 12:30.


BINGHAMTON Murder Victim Dr. Richard T. Antoun Was Not A Jewish Convert And Has No Muslim Parentage As Per His Brother in Law Rev. David Miller

Attn. World Net Daily, Atlas Shrugs Blog and whatever “Muslims Against Sharia” is and other misinformed “bloggers”, you are misrepresenting the heritage of Prof. Richard T. Antoun, more lies from the far right.

Prof. Prof. Richard T. Antoun is not Jewish, his wife is, he never was a convert to Judaism, his funeral is this Friday December 11 at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Binghamton NY, see below.

Prof. Prof. Richard T. Antoun parents (mother’s side) are Christian Arabs with their roots in Lebanon, there are no Muslims here.

From an email I received today (Sunday) from the Rev. David Miller, the brother in law of the slain Prof. Prof. Richard T. Antoun (his photo above), it appears that there are no Muslim links in the family, they are Christian Arabs, see below.


Dear Bill,

"More recently I have been introduced to Judaism, particularly the Reform tradition, through my wife in a small city (Binghamton) in upstate New York".

Dick meant this in the sense that he knew comparatively little about the Jewish religion before he married Roz, and she introduced him to Judaism in the sense of conveying information and understanding about her religion although he retained his own religion.


The correction is that there are no Muslims in the immediate family. The Antouns (father's side) and the Haddad's (mother's side) are Christian Arabs with their roots in Lebanon. (Dick's father was born in Lebanon.)

I will be conducting a funeral service for Dick at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Binghamton on Friday, December 11. Calling hours at 11:30 A.M. and funeral service at 12:30. Join us if you can.


Thanks for your good work.

Warmly,


David

(Rev. David J. Miller, Minister Emeritus, The Unitarian Universalist Church of Worcester, MA)
