For those of you who never expected to see a public debate on Muhammad in Dearborn, Michigan . . . prepare for shock and awe!
Sami Zaatari contacted me when he realized that he'd be arriving in Michigan just as I would be leaving. On short notice, we were able to schedule this debate, which was hosted by some of the Muslim students at Henry Ford Community College.
Sami proposed a very interesting topic: "Is Muhammad a Good Role Model for Society?" While we weren't able to cover everything, we certainly addressed many of the most important topics on both sides of the issue.
I should add that I have a tremendous amount of respect for the Muslims who attended the debate. It's easy to hide from criticism. It takes courage to face criticism.
