This is a hugely historic achievement, and I’m honored to be associated with the center, even if it is improperly–in my eyes–tagged as a conservative institution. The time has come for us to escape the ghettos of ideological tagging and appreciate knowledge for what it’s worth. And knowing that the foundational texts of our civilizations—Jewish, Christian, and Muslim—have more history in them than was previously thought should be celebrated by all.
