There seems to be a shortage of Imams.
What if the American dream corrupts Islam too? What if materialism eats away at Mohammedanism? Imagine, no religion too. Fallen away Muslims. Dissident Muslims.
Perhaps communists secretly infiltrated the Imam-seminaries? Or the gays? What if? If not, why not? If the shortage continues, maybe they should permit women Imams... Memaws? Where are the feminists?
Whatever, Mosques are hiring:
The Spokane Islamic Center wants something mosques all across the country are seeking and can't seem to find: an educated, bilingual, experienced imam who understands American culture.A note of caution: On "downgrading our requirements" - not the best idea, the Jesuits tried that and it didn't work so well.
According to the report "The American Mosque 2011" by University of Kentucky professor Ihsan Bagby, half of all mosques in the U.S. have no full-time staff, and only 44 percent of imams work as paid, full-time leaders.
"What we're looking for is hard to find; it's a hot commodity," El-Aarag said. "One option is maybe downgrading our requirements and finding someone with not as much experience, someone we can help and work with." - Read more here.

citicism of something
but I'm just not sure.
