I’m a bit confused as to why you responded to me in this thread, since I hadn’t been involved in it/ Unless it’s because you’re planning to include me in every “Muslims are bad” thread, just to illustrate your point.

I refuse to tar all Muslims with the same brush, anymore than I would tar all Christians or Hindus or Buddhists. “Muslims need to get real..” There are actually many, many secular and liberal Muslims, but nobody has gotten around to writing about them in the US. And they are actually speaking out without fears of fatwa from the nutcases. And yes, there are murderous and insane Muslims. I just don’t agree with you that simply being a Muslim makes you murderous and insane.

Many, many Muslims speak out against the terrorist insanity: http://www.seculardemocracy.org/

“And worst case - you need to talk this out - not hope someone puts a fatwa on me for daring to speak truth.”

I’m always happy to talk things out if there is a space for open-minded discussion instead of getting a close-minded and derisive lecture. Otherwise, I will save my breath to cool my broth.

No one hopes that you have a “fatwa” put on you. How would that even occur, since there are no identifying markers on your membership here? So no need for you to worry about that.

Better they should speak out against the Koran.
