Sorry. Couldn’t resist modeling this post’s title after Robby’s own enthusiastic one.
But it’s true! The BU Interfaith Council is also starting a panel series. The theme? “Religion Mythbusters.”
Yep. That’s right. That’s us. Well. Maybe we look a little different. And the myths we’re busting are of slightly different kinds. But we can dream.
Our goal, in this series, is to break down myths, stereotypes, and preconceptions about various religious traditions. And the first religion we’re doing that with is Islam. There are plenty of stereotypes about Islam–terrorism, oppression, violence, and more. We plan to take a deeper look at these. Our panelists include Professor Kecia Ali, undergraduate Muslim student Monsura Sirajee (a proud member of our Interfaith Council Leadership Board!), and a Muslim religious leader.
I just designed the poster. It’s cool. And it has the details of when and where this event is going down. So you should look at it:
We are all really excited about it, and hope to see you there!
