In my Monday post relating to the weekly church bulletins of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ, I mentioned that a person named Omid Safi had authored an item included in the July 8, 2007 bulletin on “Progressive Muslims.”
I originally only included a picture of the Rev. Wright’s introduction at that post.
Since then, members of the jihad-watching community recognized Safi’s name, and his organization, the Progressive Muslim Union (PMU).
There seems to be more than a little reason to doubt that the PMU is as “progressive” as it claims. Doubters with evidence include Daniel Pipes (here and here ["Omid Safi's Closed Classroom"]) and Jillosophy (warning; there is profanity in the Jillosophy comments). There are probably others who have linked over and weighed in that I have not yet detected.
Accordingly, I have uploaded all of Pages 9 and 10 from the July 8 bulletin to my host, and it can be viewed here. It contains the Reverend’s intro and Safi’s entire column.
My two cents, based on looking over what Pipes’s work, is that there are too many associations with CAIR for comfort.
But, I’ve linked, so you can decide.
