Islamic Fundamentalism: The Pending Storm
Over the past few months I have expended a great deal of electronic ink covering the continuing controversy surrounding the Muslim movement as some have called it.
This has included focusing on flashpoint crisises ranging from the building of the Ground Zero Mosque to fearful warnings of a global assimilation, and the seeming intolerance we have had towards our own religious convictions from the standpoint of Christianity in posts such as the aptly titled First prayer, then standing up to a bully and now . . . a kindergartner suspended for crying?! What is wrong with our schools!, and the 49th Parallel Forum broadcast 49th Parallel- Bah Humbug! What’s up with Happy Holidays?.
Regardless of which side of the freedom of religion debate that seems to be raging in society – especially here in North America, I have tried to provide a lens of informed understanding regarding the diversity within our increasingly globalized community, in the hope that somehow the silos of prejudice and ignorance would somehow dissolve into a mutual if not amiable co-existence.
The problem with taking this balanced approach to such a complex issue is that the equalizing tensions that seems to provide a moderating influence can itself quickly dissipate into an inflammatory wave of acrimony in which it appears that one side has somehow gained the upper hand in an emotionally charged situation.
Over time, I have amassed quite an extensive collection of posts, radio and television broadcasts which have individually and collectively garnered considerable attention and comments.
As a result, and to create a single and therefore easy access point to the entire collection, I am pleased to launch what I refer to as “The Pending Storm” page through which existing and future articles and broadcasts will be posted for your convenience.
Comments on this page are of course encouraged and more than welcome.
