Now that’s a really dumb rule…

Interfaithy Rabbi loves the Aga Khan’s Museum.

“The rule formulated by the late Swedish-American theologian Krister Stendahl that I’ve cited before in this column helps us to understand the essence of interfaith and intercultural relations: always compare their best with your best, not their worst with your best.”


Seems Sweden took that rule to heart and look where that’s gotten them.

The Aga Khan is head of the minority Ismaili sect, an offshoot of Shia Islam. Sunni’s regard them as apostate and they face persecution in the likes of Saudi Arabia & Pakistan. Doctrinal differences put them at odds with “mainstream” Shia Islam. In short they do not represent “Islam” but rather the wish-dream Islam of gullible interfaithers.

The MSM continues to be irresponsible in not pointing these facts out to readers.
