The image of this man, leader of of a charity alluding to the tale of the good Samaritan, shutting the doors to Muslims made my blood curdle.
For those of you who don't know, the story of the Good Samaritan is Jesus' answer to the question that, if we are to love our neighbour, who is our neighbour. He describes a traveller who had been beaten, stripped of his clothing, and left for dead. He describes two men, a priest, then a Levite (also a holy man) who do nothing for the traveller, but then another - a man from a cousin nation despised by the Jews - a Samaritan helps him.
Now, in 2015, if we are to modernize this parable, is it not The Good Muslim? Isn't Franklin precisely behaving like the first two men?
Leadership is hard and everyone has their shortcomings. Frank's dad built an empire that he's inheriting without necessarily being the best equipped for it. The leading of an international aid organization that seeks to love its neighbour as the Samaritan did seems to be something Frank's heart isn't capable of.
What would you do if you were on the board of this organization?
