This choice quote comes from a young white Christian American Boy Scout upon reflecting on meeting young brown Muslim American Boy scouts at a Scouting Jamboree. Its from a very interesting article in Time Magazine about Muslim Boy Scouts. Its jarring for me to realize that in the US Boy Scouts have been affiliated with the Christian faith. Growing up in Karachi I was a cub and a boy scout as part of our Jamat Khana activities and never once thought of it as being a Christian Institution. Strange. Any way Scouting is one way for integration between various communities.
Great piece on the importance and necessity of print media.
NPR has a nice piece from the Aga Khan, leader of the Shi’ah Imami Nizari Isma’ili Muslim community, on how Muslims are understood in the world. It’s worth listening to. Technorati Tags: inter-faith, intra-faith, Aga Khan
