It’s really unacceptable to see Women blamed for such gruesome acts! This is inhumane… Changing the mindset of these deeply entrenched cultural beliefs takes a lot of time… Therefore, I prefer a much stricter judicial system that PROTECT women and more importantly that’s IMPLEMENTED! (That’s why we need CONVENTIONS and LAWS as with the case of the much debated issue of the protection of women from violence law in Lebanon )
After the live covering of “Arab Pop Culture and the Media” conference that took place April 21-23 at LAU Beirut campus(You can check the live coverage here: http://www.scribblelive.com/Event/Arab_Pop_Culture_and_the_Media?Page=26), I found out that live coverage is interesting and worth repeating. This Monday ,the 10th of May, I’m going to attend a debate at AUB entitled “Is Atheism Rational?” taking place from 5:00-7:00 and I’m going to live cover it. This debate is organized by the AUB’s Debate club and Insight club in collaboration with Adam Deen’s Lectures & Debates.
It will feature Adam Deen and Dr. Chris Johns. Adam Deen is an international public speaker on Muslim Apologetics. He is also a former Islam channel presenter and intellectual activist who has been working in the field of Muslim apologetics for almost a decade. He has contributed to debates on issues ranging from ethics, to religious philosophy and theology. Adam Deen is part of a movement that draws on contemporary Western philosophy to defend Islam in public debates. He also debated USA’s leading atheist Dan Barker author of ‘Godless’.
