two local stories - 

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - As the one year anniversary of the St. Cloud mall attack approaches, St. Cloud's mayor and police chief are praising the city for coming together after the incident.

"I think St. Cloud is a shining example of what community really is," said St. Cloud Police Chief Blair Anderson.

"I think that communities all over this great nation can take a page out of our book with respect to cohesion and inclusion and respect."

The chief says even when St. Cloud residents disagree, they do so respectfully.

"That's the beauty of this nation. You are free to have your opinions and thoughts about any issue, without fear of reprisal."

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - A group of more than 50 protesters picketed outside the Granite City Baptist Church as a former Muslim and now a Christian pastor gave a speech titled The Trojan Horse of Interfaith Dialogue.

Shahram Hadian left Iran with his family in 1978 before the Islamic revolution and says political correctness on the topic of Islam needs to stop.

The protesters held signs in front of the church that read Racists Not Welcome, Christians Against Islamophobia and Make Racisim Wrong Again.

Rachel Melis from St. Cloud came out to the protest to support her Muslim neighbors and says Hadian's message is one of white supremacy.

"The speaker in my mind is here to foment hate, and to further a white supremacist agenda that would create more fear," Melis said.

She went on to say that as a white person she feels it's important to fight white supremacy.

Inside the church it was an overflow crowd that were on hand for Hadian's speech. 

Tom Krieg from St. Cloud was hoping some of the protesters would go inside to listen.

"They're going to learn the truth, instead of trying to shout down the truth which has been their focus right

i thought this would get a comment - i know i pposted two and yes this one is local , but the ideoligy and attitudes are universal , i found it hard to believe that both views could exist in this community without an open clash , maybe its still coming ,
