Hamline University retracts ‘Islamophobia’ charge as instructor sues

Although CAIR discourages teachers from showing paintings of the Prophet Muhammad because many Muslims consider it sacrilegious, it acknowledged that Muslim views on artistic representations of the prophet are not monolithic and that in fact, some Muslims have used images of the prophet as part of their devotional practices. In its statement, the university also for the first time publicly noted Muslims are not all of one mind about artistic representation.

I respect religious beliefs. I don’t understand why they avoid debate, challenge or plain dissent. I don’t accept that they bully me into respecting them.
