As a non-Muslim, I pledge to:
- Find and consume sources of information about mainstream Muslims and the practice of mainstream Islam such as this website, Steve’s book, and as found on the resources page of this website.
- Understand that the images of Muslims as portrayed in US media sources are primarily images of a very small minority of extremist, militant radicals, and that these are motivated by political issues, such as the foreign occupation of their homelands, and not by the teachings of Islam.
- Not be one of the 57% of Americans who say they respect NOTHING about Islamic societies, or that they don’t know what they respect.
- Make the acquaintance of at least one Muslim and share regular, face-to-face interaction as able.
(note: email required only to email a copy of your pledge back to you.)
