Dr. John David Lewis: Obamacare is a moral assault on free people, and an attack on human life itself.

Objectivist Koran Reading Group

From Amy Peikoff at Don’t Let It Go:

Inspired by the tremendous bravery of Ann Barnhardt:

I decided to lead a Koran reading group. Is Islam a religion of peace that’s been hijacked by a small minority of extremists, as we’ve been told repeatedly by both liberals and conservatives? Or is there something essential to Islamic doctrine that inspires and purports to legitimize acts of terrorism, as we’ve heard from people like Wafa Sultan, Robert Spencer, and Geert Wilders?
