Wakademia is cheaper than a $20 dollar whore. They would have you believe that our “religious illiteracy” is worse than 27.844 terrorist mass-murders since 9/11 and that the problem is entirely one of our rejection of Islam, and not the Mohammedan push to dominate the world.
Harvard Launches Free Online Class To Promote Religious Literacy

Diane Moore, director of Harvard Divinity School’s Religious Literacy Project to The Huffington Post.
Sales of the Quran skyrocketed in the United States following 9/11. Perhaps it was a search for answers, or a desire to parse out certain stereotypes, that made some people turn to the Muslim holy text.
But the increased circulation of the Quran due to the recent Paris attacks and rise of the Islamic State has not always helped people to better understand and respect the faith. If anything, fear and prejudice toward Islam has risen.
If you read the Qu’ran and you still don’t get it you are either dense or obtuse or both.
This is one example of the “widespread illiteracy about religion that spans the globe,” said Diane Moore, director of Harvard Divinity School’s Religious Literacy Project to The Huffington Post.
Note the conflation with “religion”, which is deliberate. This is the language of Mohammedan da’awa gigolo’s that suggests all religions are superseded by Islam; and because you haven’t submitted yet, you are “Illiterate about religion”.
To combat this illiteracy, Moore and five other religion professors from Harvard University, Harvard Divinity School and Wellesley College are kicking off a free, online series on world religions open to the masses. The courses are being offered via an online learning platform called edX, which Harvard University launched with Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2012.
Oh cometh, you masses! You will be educated! If anyone of our readers can obtain the names of these five other “religion professors” please sent them in.
The timing is ripe for such a course, Moore said. Religious illiteracy “fuels bigotry and prejudice and hinders capacities for cooperative endeavors in local, national, and global arenas,” Moore told HuffPost.
Resisting Islam equals “bigotry and prejudice”, right. Submit and your life and belongings are safe from the soldiers of allah. Aslam taslim!
The edX series will include six classes on different subjects that will each run for four weeks. Moore is teaching the first course in the series on “Religious Literacy: Traditions and Scriptures,” which begins on March 1. The next five will dive into specific faiths, covering Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism and Judaism.
Religious literacy entails more than just knowing the Five Pillars of Islam or Buddhism’s Four Noble Truths, Moore said. Such an approach “reinforces the problematic assumption that religions are internally uniform and ahistorical,” she added.
Instead, Moore suggested that religious literacy should include an understanding that religious traditions are “internally diverse,” ever-evolving, and play complex roles in people’s lives.
Islam is exactly what it is according to Qu’ran, sira and hadith. It is not “internally diverse” and it never evolved in 1400 years of its atrocious history. Whether is plays “complex roles” in the lives of devout Muslims should be none of our concern. Our concern is to be free of Islam.
To that end, the course aims to offer participants an understanding of the history and interpretations of religious texts and why some were designated as “sacred.” Students will also dive into contemporary and historical interpretations of the texts to get a feel for just how “internally diverse” the traditions are.
Gibberish. Religious Muslims take their Islam straight up, undiluted. “It is not befitting for a believer, man or woman, when a matter has been decided by Allah and His Apostle, to have any option about their decision, and if anyone disobeys Allah and His Apostle, he/she is clearly on the wrong path.” [Q33:36]. Islam is not subject to “interpretation”, it commands jihad against unbelievers to make the world islamic, thats the sole purpose of Islam.
Moore said she and the other facilitators anticipate up to 50,000 people will enroll for the series, given that it is online and free for students who audit the courses. For those interested in earning a certificate of achievement at the end of the series, edX offers a non-audit track for $50.
The course is especially aimed at educators, Moore said, as well as members of faith communities interested in multi-faith engagement and dialogue.
“We Muslims must do brainwashing”–Sheikh Khalid Yasin. “Multi-faith engagement and dialogue” is a rather dumb phrase to conceal the fact that they are calling you to submit to Islam.
She added, “I’m excited to provide a platform for more informed discourse about religion.”
If its not the Arab petrodollars that excite her, it must be her own stupidity.
