Georgetown University’s Bridge Initiative is based in Georgetown University’s Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding. The Bridge Initiative is a multi-year research project that connects the academic study of Islamophobia with the public square.”
Anything coming out of the Bridge Initiative sponsored by billionaire Saudi Prince Alwaleed concerning Islamophobia with 4 of 6 board members Muslims would most definitely lean 100% in Islam’s favor.
(Ms Duffner need not lecture me about Islamophobia. My son’s best friend when growing up was a lovely Muslim boy. He was delightful and polite…but was never allowed to spend the night at our house and the first chance his mother got to convert me to Islam she tried. Nevertheless they were a lovely family although I always felt uncomfortable after the mother’s conversion attempt.)
Ms Duffner’s article is the normal liberal Catholic fluff about Islam and how Muslims are persecuted “just like Catholics were once persecuted.”
The reason for this post, though, is that the comments on the article by J. Cosgrove. They are spot on. He takes Ms Duffner to task as well as a few of the other commenters. In addition he offers good links and resources. It’s a pity that Ms Duffner more than likely will never read them.
Here is one of J Cosgrove's answers to a commenter: I suggest you read/listen to the resources I provided. No other religion besides Islam advocates the killing of those who do not believe in their religion. Islam is not just a religion but a political and social movement that controls all of life. The Holy War comes from one direction. I am suggesting the compassionate solution.
