At a Glance
Written By: The Kairos Journal Team
A religion is based upon two things: texts and traditions. What do the texts and traditions of the Muslim faith say with respect to deeply cherished values of modern people such as freedom of religion, the dignity of women, and the distinction between church and state? Is Islam, as a worldview, “just a religion,” or is it more aggressive, an expansionist, political ideology? With all due deference to the many Muslims who privately practice their beliefs with kindness toward their neighbors, critical thinking demands that one come to terms with such questions. What do the texts and traditions of Islam have to say about essential aspects of today’s world?
