held a lecture:
Feed the Donkey First:
Prof. Abdullahi Ahmed An-Na'im
Thursday, November 12, 2009
12:30 – 2:00 PM
Shea, An-Na'im, and Marshall
Internationally recognized scholar of Islam and human rights, Abdullahi Ahmed An-Na'im discussed ways to challenge punishments for apostasy, "heresy," and dissent, a problem he will argue requires consistent and principled action as well as theological and theoretical innovation. A Sudanese proverb states that you must feed your donkey before you can ride it; we must build a consensus and institutions to protect all human rights as a foundation for defending particular rights.
Hudson Senior Fellow Paul Marshall commented and Senior Fellow Nina Shea moderated and introduced.
