Shia and Sunni Muslims and other religious schisms

** DISCLAIMER** Due to technical difficulties, we aren't able to bring you the second half of this conversation as it aired on our pledge-free stream. Our most sincere apologies. With a violent Al-Qaeda offshoot running amok in Iraq, media outlets continually refer to the fighting as “sectarian tensions”. But what does that mean? How deep is the divide between Sunni and Shia Muslims? We’ll explore the split in Islam, and the divides in other major religions with three religion scholars. Photo: Flickr/james_gordon_losangeles
