While browsing the internet, I ran into this debate about the so-called “Clash of Civilizations” by Reza Aslan and Rod Dreher. I don’t know either men, but Mr. Aslan dismantles the concept of the monolithic “Islamic Culture” that forms the thesis of this thinking. Whether from Muslims or non-Muslims, I don’t like this thinking. I am a Muslim who was born and raised in the United States and my culture is firmly rooted here. There are a variety of different cultures and there is no such thing as “Islamic Culture”.
Islamic Worship and Belief? Yes
“Islamic Culture”? No
They address an array of subjects around this. Watch the entire debate here
