Father Edwin Daschbach, SVD Imams Desperately Need Education RetiredArchbishopofCanterbury, cause it did not contain hispetso,a/ George Carey, who used to head the seal nor was it posted on his Web worldwide Anglican com- munion, gave an important talk in March at Rome's Catholic Pontifical Gregorian University. His subject was Islam and the violence that has been so markedly associated with it in recent history. As Careypointed out: 'Tslam is in opposition to practical@ every other world religion - to Juda- ism in the Middle East; to Christian- ity in the West, in Nigeria and in the Middle East; to Hinduism in India; to Buddhism, especial@ since the destruction of the Temples in Af- ghanistan. "It is easy to get the clear impression that Islam is violent at its core, that we are now seeing its true colors. Carey then pointed out the heart of the problem in Islam today: During the past 500 years critical scholar- s~tip has declined, leading to strong resistance to modernity. Imams, who are the leaders in Is- lam, bear responsibility for that di- rection of the world's Muslims. We can grasp an idea of their power over Muslim adherents from a recent epi- sode in Baghdad. Iran's most re- spected Shiite cleric (read "Imam") made a statement urging the with- drawal of radical militias as well as Coalition forces from two Shiite holy cities. His aides said the statement did not llave the full binding force of this honored cleric's statements be- ll site. If these two condi- tions were present, it would have been consid- ered a religious decree or fatwa and would be bind- ing on his /ollowers. Now, if such Imams have not been trained thor- dugl]l) ~nd in scholarly 'f~iS~'~'fi their Muslim faith, they can easily wield a power that is influenced by fringe elements that rely more on inadequate study of Islam CA little knowledge is a dangerous thing") or on cm~lion and prejudice than on objective be- liefs of Islam. This Islam funda- mentalism is precisely what seems to be occurring throughout the Mus- lim world today, and is the cause of the violence and terrorism plaguing world regions where Muslims are present. It is all the result, again in Carcy's words, of the absence dur- ing the past 500 years of critical scholarship in Islam. A lack of education can result in similar problems outside the Islam religion. The future of our youth is tied in to the education they receive at our hands, from family, church, and school. Prejudice feeds on igno- rance. Economic hardship results from it (And ignorance means not just "lack o' knowledge but also "insufficient" knowledge). Anything that limits or obstructs good learn- ing is an injustice and a worthy object of our deep concern. I |J I THE END OF SPRING PLANT SALE!
