When a muslim preaches dignity…

Cherry stain on white fabric.

If we still believe in some concept of inherent human dignity, it’s precisely at moments like this that it matters. In the same way that human rights matter most when we’re sorely tempted to dispense with them, human dignity becomes most meaningful when we’re tempted to strip it; when we’re confronted with those we think least deserve it; when we’re asked to give it to those who have done something terrible or even denied that dignity to others. That may not satisfy our anger. It might even leave us disappointed. But it’s in that very tension that we discover the difference between vengeance and justice.

Hi Walee! I have one burning question to ask from a pro-Chirstian perspective to a pro-Muslim perspective …has your primary wife been “fixed”?  Surely, there is no greater dignity for a woman.
