Apoligies for lengthy absence. I am preparing a mega-post for the week-end, dealing with the following:
1. Muslims' understanding of Mary
2. Why it is difficult to speak of "Muslim" understanding of Mary
3. Muslim Law
4. Why Muslim Law and Civil Law are basically incompatible (basically is a scientifically precise word here)
I will also have thoughts regarding the Pope in Byzantium, especially this http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1561120,00.html article.
Happy Reading, and we'll see you soon.
