After my post yesterday, the Patheos Muslim channel responded magnanimously in two posts: “Summer of Our Discontent,” by Rabia Chaudry, and “I am Proud to be of Christian and Muslim Heritage,” by Precious Rasheeda Muhhamad. I thank them for their attention and concern.
Deacon Greg Kandra has added (and updated) a post of his own, with more links and information about the widespread ISIS condemnations from Muslims around the world.
I will strive to seek out a more productive and salutary culture of encounter, even as I mourn the vicious encounters between ISIS and their victims, and the violence and suffering that are far too easy to find these days.
Where there are wounds, may we seek healing.
