If it hurts, if it’s controversial, if it articulates an extreme point of view, then speech has become the new bête noire of the academy.

I think it will be frightening when religion is seen as an "evil" that should be removed from society. He might have taken refuge in bitterness or despair. Aditya added that it is tiring for human beings (who have limited energy) to rationalize everything all the time. So the supreme qualification for psychologists would be Christlikeness.

The essay has nothing to do with current day real world politics. (The United Nations of current day Earth respects the non-interference principle more than the planet wide declaration of human rights.) Recently, Faisal sat down with me to discuss his upcoming projects and religion’s powerful influence throughout the Middle East.
