Top Catholics Love Muslim TV

    I’m sorry but I see nothing wrong with protests or boycotts, against something that you disagree with. How else can we express ourselves if we don’t use our freedom of speech and association? Letting Islamics know that they are being held responsible for the murder of thousands upon thousands of innocent men, women, and children, is the only way they will ever begin to police their own.
    Would the Inquisition still be around today if other Christians hadn’t pointed out how evil they were, with the torturing to death of anyone, and burning of witches? Did you know that a woman was recently executed in Saudi Arabia for witchcraft?
    I certainly don’t think Islamics should be given a PR platform to make excuses, for the inexcusable.

    Meanwhile, relgious cleansing is proceeding apace in the Middle East. It’s not what people have in their heart, it’s the raw numbers that matter. Which is why each and every Muslim can be a wonderful person, and Muslim immigration still be a bad idea.

    In my opinion, that TV program is nothing more than a subtle form of PC propaganda.

    I’m a conservative Christian and I have no idea why, out of 800 channels showing 24 hours of programming, there can’t there be 1 show about moderate Muslims in America? If you don’t like it don’t watch it. If you don’t think your beliefs can survive the marketplace, then maybe you need to re-think them.

  • I guess my problem is that the Muslim community doesn’t speak out when its radical elements murder innocents. Explain to my why only Christian and, to a lesser extent, Jewish organizations speak up in defense of moderate Muslims?

    Totally agree with Jbird. You can protest all you want but that doesn’t make it is a good idea. Good luck trying to get moderate muslims to speak out by shaming them. Your chances would be a lot better if you were trying to get them to speak out from a sense of pride in being Muslim American. It shouldn’t be our responsibility to produce this sentiment among an immigrant populations, but it doens’t mean we can’t help it along.

    Good post. One minor correction. Formally speaking, the Witherspoon Institute is an independent group in Princeton.

    I haven’t seen the show, and I do not wish to express an opinion on the matter. So it is purely as a mischievous troublemaker that I suggest that [email protected] should have quoted the words of a wise man:

    It is not just the spectacular sinners, with their hands drenched in blood, whose victims cry out for justice. The quiet, respectable sinners — American whites, for example, who could have done more about racial injustice but chose to turn a blind eye — have responsibilities that a just and loving God cannot ignore.

    Every other immigrant group has gone through something similar, usually much wo0rse. It’s part of assimilation.

    Multi-culturalism is on the way out.

    Following up on your links, I thought Robert Spencer’s complaint against the show was interesting: “. . . it is noteworthy that both the woman who is getting married and the one who is trying to open a club acknowledge that they are not all that religious. And that is the problem at the heart of All-American Muslim.”

    I learned only relatively recently that 80% of American Muslims are not affiliated with a mosque. That is an important fact to keep in mind.

    Thanks to poor reporting in the NYT and other mainstream media in the aftermath of 9/11, most Americans don’t know this, something I presume this television show is trying to rectify.

    Of course it hasn’t helped that ordinary American Muslims haven’t spoken up more clearly. Maybe that is because they are unorganized? Or just want to keep their heads down?

    In any case this looks like a worthy show.
