Inter-Belief Converation Cafe; Je Suis Charlie OR NOT? On January 7 Muslim extremists attacked the offices of the French satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo, and killed eleven people there. Millions, including Muslim leaders marched in the streets saying, "Je suis Charlie"--"I am Charlie." But do cartoons showing a naked Muhammad and images insulting Islam and other religions constitute free speech or a right to be gratuitously offensive. While standing against violence, is hurtful attack on faith the Charlie we wish to be? February 16, 7-8:45 PM at SPACC
