The Role of Dissent in Islam and America
It’s funny, dissent; there are times when expressing disagreement with our leaders seems very patriot or noble, and yet there are other times when it is seen as disloyal and subversive. And the more fundamental a society becomes, the less dissent is tolerated, but the more it seems to be needed. And lest we think this just happens in Islamic countries, let’s take a good look at America’s tolerance for dissent in the past couple of years. Join us on Monday as we discuss the role dissent does, can and should play in Islam and America. Today’s show is from our archives, so we won’t be taking calls this hour.
