In his op-ed that appeared in The New York Post, Bill Cosby, the popular comedian and star of the sitcom The Cosby Show, shared his views about some of the flaws in modern society. He stated that we should take a page out of the Qur’an if we want to have healthier families, less crime and more productive people.
The following is an excerpt from Bill Cosby’s op-ed that appeared in the New York Post:
“I’m a Christian. But Muslims are misunderstood. Intentionally misunderstood. We should all be more like them. They make sense, especially with their children. There is no other group like the Black Muslims, who put so much effort into teaching children the right things, they don’t smoke, they don’t drink or overindulge in alcohol, they protect their women, they command respect. And what do these other people do?
They complain about them, they criticize them. We’d be a better world if we emulated them. We don’t have to become black Muslims, but we can embrace the things that work.”
