http://dianoilogos.wordpress.com/2012/12/17/how-about-making-chopra-an-honorary-sufi-sheik/ Another pingback and confused post from Luke: so, Luke, this discussion is starting to go sideways, let’s drop it.

An atheist leader of sufi mystics….not in this millennium

This issue of the left and sufism (and the outlandish posts on making Chomsky an honorary sufi sheik) is tricky, and the material on Chomsky brings home the way in which two worlds that need to cooperate are, at present, doomed to collision. To make an atheist a leader of sufi mystics is an idea […]
