Mike Ghouse honored | TheGhousediary.com 

The Grace International Seminary awarded the Doctor of Divinity to Mike Ghouse – an honorary Doctorate for his work on Pluralism. Thanks to Dr. Karen Hollie-Thibodeuax the Chancellor the Seminary, and Bishop Thibodeuax and Mark Hernandez for facilitating this happening.

Mike is considered an authority on Pluralism. Pluralism is a brand new discipline in the academic world and is yet to be taught as a subject. The course material would be unique, as it will focus on its effect on different aspects of life in building cohesive societies, societies where no one has to live in apprehension or fear of the other. Mike defines pluralism as simply an attitude respecting the otherness of others, and accepting the God given uniqueness of each one of his creation. 

Mike has a dream, a dream that one day in our life time; we all will wake up to a cohesive world, where no human has to live in tension, apprehension or fear of the other, nor should one feel alienated. Indeed, that was the dream of all the spiritual masters of the world, and that is what the creator wants; all pieces of his creation to function coherently. 
Our founding fathers believed, “That all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.” And that dream was refreshed by Martin Luther King, Jr.

Mike is a Pluralist to the core, and believes that if we can respect the otherness of others and accept the God given uniqueness of each one of  the 7 billion humans on the planet earth.  Most of the problems in the world exists because what we learn about others is negative and build myths about the other.

Mike believes the solutions likes in a simple “knowing each other”, knowledge leads to understanding and understanding to acceptance and appreciation of a different point of view.
Mike has a national presence on TV, Radio,Print and the Internet Media. Mike has appeared in over 100 shows with Sean Hannity on Fox News and over 50 times on nationally syndicated radio shows.  Fox News, Syndicated Radio shows, Dallas Morning News, Huffington Post, and a variety of News Papers here and abroad for giving him a strong National and local presence. 

He has  written nearly 3000 articles, and bulk of them are published in Dallas Morning News, Huffington Post, New Age Islam, Op-ed News , Arab Daily News, Arab News, Saudi Gazette, and several other News papers and periodicals around the world. Of the 2800, 1000+ were on Islam, 1000+ on Pluralism and the rest were on politics, India, Pakistan, Israel-Palestine, Motivational and other topics.

Currently Mike is working on  making a film based on a compelling true story of building a cohesive America, and writing a book on human rights - "Standing up for others"- standing up from Atheists to Zoroastrians and every one in between.

Please watch the 10 Minutes trailer of the documentary in making

Mike is appreciated around the world; indeed, he has over 10 Million views of his profile at Google and 15 Million on his website.

God has blessed him with an aptitude for mitigating conflicts and nurturing goodwill in everything he does,  that is think, talk and act, and he has been a life time volunteer, and it is a joy to maintain a healthy balance between earning a living and serving the public.

As they say, Pluralism runs in his veins.  The Grace International Seminary awarded the Doctor of Divinity – an honorary Doctorate for my work on Pluralism. Thanks to Dr. Karen Hollie-Thibodeuax the Chancellor the Seminary, and Bishop Thibodeuax and Mark Hernandez my buddy for facilitating this happening.
