Katie Couric made news this week saying maybe America needs a Cosby-like Muslim family show on television to help ignorant Americans know what Islam is about and understand the peace and joy within the religion. Canada has just such a show, Little Mosque on the Prairie,” and it is “wildly popular.” Amusingly, in the video segment below, you will see women openly worshipping in the same room with Muslim men – something you will seldom, if ever see in real life. How about the female “parishioner” being kissed by the imam? Can that happen in real life without the woman dying?
Every Monday night at 8:30, Canadians can tune into CBC Television’s sitcom “Little Mosque on the Prairie.” The show is wildly popular — enough so that it’s currently on its fifth season. The audience watches as a new imam and his mosque try to assimilate into the predominately Anglican town of Mercy. Each episode is rife with jokes about stereotypes because, as the show’s website explains, assimilation “isn’t as easy as they thought.”
Mean-ole White Christians make assimilation impossible?
I believe there are many, many Muslims in the West longing to live freely, with their religion practiced peacefully, as portrayed in Little Mosque on the Prairie – just a normal life, but if there are any Koranic Muslim men in their families, neither young men or woman can do so. If there is a radical imam anywhere in their lives, they cannot live moderately.
I write a lot about Islam, and I am hard-nosed when it comes to trusting anything attached to it, but I do believe most want no part of radicalism. Unfortunately, if the “moderates” are standing against their own, in their mosques and communities, we seldom see it. The day we begin telling the truth about Islam and the teachings of Mohammed, will be a very good day for America. A moderate response to a radical action simply doesn’t work.
