Not sure if you remember but we have met at DL in Seattle.
I have a problem that you may be able to help with. For reasons I do not understand, Lee Rosenberg has set out on a campaign of character assassination against me. He has even threatened to mount some sort of campaign to have my UW tenure removed.
He claims to have discussed this with you and that you share his feelings on this. That bothers me a great deal.
The specific issue has to do with Mr. , At the time of his arrest , I was distressed by the effort at mass murder and wrote about my concerns that tolerance not extend to tolerance of bigotry.
FWIW, this was two years ago but somehow it has stuck in Lee's craw. Now he claims I have been on some sort of an effort the Cities Muslim Center. He claims that I blamed them for . If you read the blog you will see this is simply , far the truth,
For what is worth (and you are welcome to read my blog) the blog never mentioned any specifics about Mr. education. I did talk and write about the issue of and the fact that we should be concerned that are being taught in the US .I provided links to a very good study of Muslim curricula at that time and to effort in the Muslim community to reform.
Lee equates this with an attack on the Cities Muslim community. I know far to little about the community to make such an assertion. I do know is that received a education there and his view of Islam led to a terrible . that raise about how Islam is taught in any school, not just the one . attended. I have written that I see this as a warning flag, hardly the sort of hate speech Lee Rosenberg is spreading.
FWIW, I have made similar comments about other sources of bigotry. I am, unfortunately aware, that the Roman catechism prior to John XXIII, did contain a lot of bigotry vs. the Jews. In my own childhood, students studying these horrid texts stoned me in for the murder of their God. The Dutch Reform Church South Africa, the WWII Shinto , and the movement in my own people are more than enough examples of this sort of thing.
My bottom line is that I my reputation of . If you know I have actually that was wrong or anything lee is saying about my , I appreciate constructive feedback.
Anyhow, Lee has for reasons I do not understand tried to paint this as bigotry on MY part.
