Today PajamasMedia has an essay by Hege Storhaug titled: The Stifling Effect of Muhammed’s Life and Teachings on Muslim Society: We need a constructive and fact-based debate about Muhammed’s life and his meaning for society today.
Beyond the school subjects that mobile browsers are increasingly providing to students across the world, the full sweep of Truth is becoming available to each individual. That astounding fact holds enormous hope for the decades and centuries that lie ahead. That is the topic of this comment that I wrote in response to Storhaug’s essay:
There is a new, fascinating, inexorable cause for predicting the turning the tide against the centuries of oppression of individuals by Islam: the mobile Web browser! The devices are even small enough for a woman to conceal in her burqa. A lot has been written about the role of social networking in the Arab Spring: truth networking is powerfully part of this and its impact is only beginning. Within a very few years essentially every person on earth will have a way to view the broad world through his/her own browser.
Jesus told his followers at the Sermon on the Mount: “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32) The new global networking of Truth is a glorious dawning hope for humankind.
