Islam:  Challenges to Peaceful Co-existence in the West with speaker Dr. Fatma Reda will be held on Wednesday, June 19 from 7-8 p.m. in the Gallery at Gethsemane Lutheran Church, 715 Minnetonka Mills Rd., Hopkins.  This program is free and open to all.  For more information visit glconline.org or phone 952-935-1753.

How do Muslims adjust to and co-exist in a pluralistic society? How do they cope with the added burden of being viewed as a threat? These are two of the questions that will be addressed in the presentation. Dr. Reda is a psychiatrist and consultant physician with a PhD in Comparative Religious Studies.

"How to they (muslims) cope with being viewed as a threat"? says the article. I really don't care how they, the muslims, cope. It is the Christian world that is under attack!

Perhaps what Mike B sees as being under attack is the world less willing to be controlled by the Catholic Church and other conservative churches for nearly 2000 years. Starting with the Roman conversion to Catholicism there has been a constant imperial conquest of the world with forced conversions, church imperial state alliances, inquisitions, etc. You are welcome to follow your church's laws but the rest of the world doesn't want them imposed on us. You church has has had a constant war on science and intellectual pursuit because thinking and discovery threatens established church dogma. If you want to unceremoniously trash unneeded embryo's from fertility clinics that's fine for believers, but others should also be free to donate them to save lives. You are free not to marry gays. leave the rest of us alone.
