Last week, the Baptist church's pastor, Donald McKay, defended the event in an interview with WJBK-TV.
"Islam is a growing threat in the United States of America," he said. "We don't hate Muslims, we hate the ideology they are identified with.
Hadian said on his website that his Sept. 11 discussion would "expose the growing deception of interfaith dialogue" and "explain how interfaith 'dialogue' is compromising the Gospel & our national security."
But the Council on American-Islamic Relations along with members of Congress and state representatives pressed the church to cancel the event, and its elders complied.
The executive director of CAIR's Michigan chapter, Dawud Walid, cast the event's message as "anti-Muslim bigotry."
