One recommendation I always give folks (especially Millennials and younger) who want to learn more about Islam is to follow Muslims on social media. It's a great window into how their faith fits into, informs, and shapes their lives.

McCain's replacement in the Senate has won awards from Frank Gaffney's anti-Muslim group, the Center for Security Policy. Gaffney is close to numerous GOP politicians, including Pres Trump who cited CSP in calling for "total + complete shutdown of Muslims" in 2015.

According to this recent Pew survey, non-Muslim Europeans are in favor of regulating public expressions of religiosity for Muslims, particularly in regards to what Muslim women can wear.

As a visibly Muslim woman, I receive both cruelty & kindness when I travel. On this trip had serious doses of both. A note to anyone seeking to end Islamophobia in your own practice. The choice is simply to be human by treating others as if they are human too.

China is using the discourse to justify its internment of 1 million . Anti-Muslim activists & orgs in the west have all spewed the same dangerous rhetoric now being used by China in their demonization of Muslims.

I draw heavily on Fr. Christian’s writing in my own book. His metaphor for interreligious dialogue — digging a well to God together — is my favorite way to think about it.

Fr. Christian wrote about how, for him, it wasn’t just Christ’s sacrifice that was present in the Eucharist, but Mohammed’s too. For more on their friendship and how it impacted Fr. Christian’s theology and ministry, I highly recommend this book.

Fr. Christian de Chergé (left) and his fellow Tibhirine monks, killed in Algeria in 1996, will be beatified in October. Fr. Christian’s vocation was deeply inspired by his friend Mohammed (right), who years before sacrificed his own life to save Christian’s.

I’m glad to hear this. I hope it is the first of many steps to not only address sex abuse, but also the culture of cover up.
