U.S. Muslims and Mormons share deepening ties Gina Ferazzi / Los Angeles Times Steve Gilliland, a Mormon, left, listens as Maher Hathout, a Muslim, talks about the Koran in Hathout's home. Although of different

religions, the two are close friends. The connection is based not on theology but on shared values and a sense of isolation from mainstream America.

By David Haldane, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer April 2, 2008 The Mormon Church has to be among the most outgoing on earth; in

recent years its leaders have reached out to, among others, Latinos, Koreans, Catholics and Jews. One of the most enthusiastic responses, however, has come from

what some might consider a surprising source: U.S. Muslims. "We are very aware of the history of Mormons as a group that was chastised in America," says Maher Hathout, a senior advisor to the

Muslim Public Affairs Council in Los Angeles. "They can be a good model for any group that feels alienated."
