"Islam: The Faith"
Many people have asked for a sermon on Islam. In conversation I
have learned that what was really desired was a look at how the

by looking at the basics of Islam: What are the key teachings of
the Qu'ran? What is the history of the faith's development?

“Islam: The Fanatics”
In part two of the series I will look at the kind of culture in
certain nations that allow the corruption of Islam's message for
political ends. I'll also look at how these corrupted messages are
spread and how the west aids that spread.

and moderate people forced to live in fear for their lives. Is there
peace in sight? Where can we go from here as liberal religious westerners?
