Dear Rightwing Catholic Islamophobes: Pope Francis just washed the feet of a Poor Muslim | Informed Comment

I post this article as a counter-weight to the article about the Christian pastor arrested in Iran. A substantial conversation was inspired by that first article and it seemed appropriate to present an article that presents a second perspective on the issue of Muslim/Christian relations.

Your thoughts?

Dear Rightwing Catholic Islamophobes: Pope Francis just washed the feet of a Poor Muslim | Informed Comment

  1. Mr. Cole, I can understand your concern with being Islamophobes, however your column lacks balance in that you attach certain people critical of Islam, but you totally ignore writers from within the Muslim religion.

    There are varied and many who warn us that Islam is not the "religion of peace" it claims to be. Take for example, Ayaan Hirsi; Nujood Au; Wafu Sultan; Bruce Bawer, a gay may I add, who sternly warns of extremism in his book "How radical Islam is destroying the West from within."

    Tarek Fatah, a devote Muslim provides objective insights into the inherent dangers of radicals.

    I could go on, Mr. Cole, but what we need is balance and objective thinking not playing the “right” vs. the “left” card. Clear thinking, even though this is a rare gem in today’s society must always be present in pluralistic society.

    Cliff
