Video: Yale promotes Koran as law book with ‘intellectual achievements’

robertson-koranOn Monday, CBN News reported that the Yale Law School is sending a booklet entitled “Reading the Koran as a Law Book” to some of its alumni, including evangelist Pat Robertson.

Robertson said he was shocked when he received the booklet, which he did not request.

CBN added:

It’s from a lecture by Joseph Lowry an associate professor from the University of Pennsylvania.

Lowry believes the Koran should be taken seriously as a book of laws. This follows Yale’s decision to create a Center for Islamic Law and Civilization after a Saudi businessman gave a $10 million donation.

“Islamic law has a long and proud tradition, which encompasses great intellectual achievements,” said law school Dean Robert C. Post.

“This follows Yale’s decision to create a Center for Islamic Law and Civilization after a Saudi businessman gave a $10 million donation to the law school,” he added. “The dean says, and I quote, ‘Islamic law has a long and proud tradition, which encompasses great intellectual achievements.’ He’s got to be kidding! This is Yale Law School. They’re in the tank to the Saudis!”

Robertson can be seen discussing the booklet below:
