Three Cups of Tea

The book Richardson is reading which evidently convinces Christians not to hate Muslims. I had it recommended to me this morning....for other reasons I'm sure. So I am passing the recommendation along to all of you as well...also for reasons other than me thinking y'all hate Muslims...same as me...the un-Muslim hater.

  1. D,
    Here's a film that has some background on the Islamic and Christian agitprop from the last 50 years, it explained a lot, for me anyway
    you might give it 10 minutes

    The Power of Nightmares

    From the wikipedia

    "The films compare the rise of the Neo-Conservative movement in the United States and the radical Islamist movement, making comparisons on their origins and claiming similarities between the two. More controversially, it argues that the threat of radical Islamism as a massive, sinister organised force of destruction, specifically in the form of al-Qaeda, is a myth perpetrated by politicians in many countries—and particularly American Neo-Conservatives—in an attempt to unite and inspire their people following the failure of earlier, more utopian ideologies.

    The Power of Nightmares has been praised by film critics in both Britain and the United States. Its message and content have also been the subject of various critiques and criticisms from conservatives and progressives."

  2. Yeah,

    There sure are some similarities.... just the other day I saw yet another headline of some gang of neo-conservative WASPs in Arkansas stoning some poor woman to death because she made eye contact with a non-relative man.
