Ibrahim, Raymond and Juan

My friend Raymond M. shared this the other day — another example of the clueless, Faux News poppycock that U. of Mich. Professor Juan Cole regularly dissects at his Informed Comment site (reason I regularly refer sincere, thinking people there). I generally consider Internet hate-mongering a cry for help from otherwise decent people who (like Juan Williams, perhaps?) are fighting off their bigotry. So I passed along this which another friend just shared with me.

I also reminded Ray of our monthly interfaith gatherings that provide opportunities for folks to get together in a comfortable, refreshing, respectful and thoughtful atmosphere to meet real people of all stripes, ask questions, share ideas, learn about and from each other and help jettison stereotypes and bigotry.

Coming up next, Muslims, Christians & All in Model Interfaith Dialogue and Unity: The Interfaith Alliance video, “Vision of Creating Community,” featuring San Diego’s Masjidul Taqwa and the Focolare Movement, continues the ongoing DVD & Discussion series, Sunday, Nov. 21, 2-4 pm, at the United Methodist Church of the Palm Beaches, 900 Brandywine Road, West Palm Beach 33409. Organized by New Africa of the Palm Beaches with support of local clergy and lay friends. These monthly interfaith gatherings provide opportunities to transcend religious, ethnic and cultural divisions, by learning from and about each other, while developing exemplary models for human interaction and cooperation. More info: 561-309-5476.

Yep, still better to light a candle than curse the darkness.
