Thank Justice Kennedy for Denouncing Anti-Muslim Ignorance
ADC Action Alert:
Please Thank Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy for Denouncing Anti-Muslim Ignorance In a town hall meeting with high school students this afternoon, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy decried what he called the “abysmal ignorance” of Islam and the Muslim world in the United States and called on Americans to search for greater understanding of Islam and Muslims.
In his remarks on changes he has seen since his appointment to the Court and his hopes for the future, Justice Kennedy said that “I hope that in the next century we will come to terms with our abysmal ignorance of the Muslim world. Muslims aren‘t a bunch of wackos and nuts. They are decent, brilliant, talented people with a great civilization and traditions of their own, including legal traditions. Americans know nothing about them. There are people in that part of the world with whom we are simply out of touch. That‘s a great challenge for the next century.”
