Dealing with our Darknesses - Workshop - Militancy and the Theological Exploitation of Religion for ViolenceExport this event to calendar

Sunday, November 20, 2016 — 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM EST

Examine religious and ethnic othering, militancy, terrorism, and the theological and legal justifications for violence and oppression, past and present. Topics to be considered here may include "texts of terror" in our scriptures, religiously sanctioned or promoted violence (often mixed with values of the state or dominant culture), as well as concrete examples of the complexities of trying to address the “religious” and cultural justifications for violence so we can emerge from the darknesses of supremacism, dehumanization, persecution, and the many other faces of violence.

Presenters:

Dr. Mohammad Fadel, Associate Professor & Canada Research Chair for the Law and Economics of Islamic Law, University of Toronto and Captain Michael Peterson, Chaplain, Canadian Forces.
