Islam on Lewis: Why the church should support Muslims’ right to build mosques

Recently it was announced that the first mosque is about to be built on the Western Isles – a bastion of conservative evangelical Calvinism, dominated by the Free Church of Scotland (colloquially and somewhat pejoratively known as ‘the Wee Frees’). The press sniffed blood – surely this would outrage the Free Church and create civil war? The old headlines ‘Wee Free Outrage’ were dusted down … Continue reading Islam on Lewis: Why the church should support Muslims’ right to build mosques

That’s probably because most of the Iranians I meet are students. Be that as it may, Iran is a fascinating culture dating back to the days of the Persian Empire and right up to the modern Islamic Republic. … Continue reading Why the great silence from our politicians over Iran?
