    An excellent talk! One that hopefully creates 'critical thought' and awareness.

    Surprise! Just after I hit "post," I thought of something that made me question my own opinion/authority/"dogma": What about "The American Revolution?" England & "The Colonies" fought like hell -- & yet -- "Look at us Now"; It's a fact of his/herstory that the war occurred--yet we're the best of "buddies" now; other examples exist, such as the U. S. & Japan; the U. S. & Germany; the U. S. & Russia (?) so I see contradictions in my own dictum. "Forgive but not Forget." Don't repeat the negativity of the Past. Do WE (The U. S.) justify the American Revolution as "Just/Good"? now, since Time has healed things? What about the U. S. & China? Perhaps it's also a case of "Never Say Never." If we can't question our own "dogma," how can we ever Evolve?

    Terrence, your opinion was an EXCELLENT, most succinct summary of his talk. I totally agree with you. Just because a WRONG (for ex., the Crusades in the name of Christianity--or the Inquisition, also in the name of Christianity--"happened a long time ago" is NO justification for their occurrence in the FIRST place. A Wrong is a WRONG-- & TIME does NOT excuse their occurrence--One/A Society can "Forgive"/Let Go of the hatred -- so as not to keep the vengeful/"tit-for-tat"/Hatfield-McCoy, etc. childish cycle going; however One/A Society should not FORGET the Lessons of His/Herstory!

    Excellent. Made me think in a new direction.

    Speaker's attack on radical Islam was justified but his defense of Christian violence was not.
