A fair point, with the fearmongering about radical Muslims in full tilt.
You could start by reading Leo Tolstoy’s The Kingdom of God Is Within You. (text, Project Gutenberg) It stands in a thread of radical Christian discipleship that reaches before Tolstoy to Universalist minister Adin Ballou — a point of pride — and afterwards to Gandhi and Martin Luther King, who each made non-violent resistance a household word. (Well, a household compound word.)
And it takes some cool, deliberate, principled and sacrificial action when you think of what went on in Congress today. Millions of American Muslims are pilloried for actions of a tiny handful. Such grimÂ attention — Â a cultivated double-standard — persons of other faiths don’t have to suffer.
Pilloried by Representative Peter King, a man who has defended terrorist organizations when it suited him. For shame.
Good Muslim friends: others can see through this cruel folly.
