I think more people are arguing factual debate.
A Muslim commits a heinous act and I see people on this board say "SEE! They're all backwards freedom hating savages" which is painting with a broad brush.
I see people blame them for things we have no idea if they've done or not.
On the other side of the coin I see threads blaming all white people because an assclown white guy shoots some people up... The same people from above say he doesn't represent us.
The problem is there is no nuance in debate about Muslims... It's either Islam isn't a real religion, and they're all savages and the world would be better if they're all dead, but at the very least get them out of our country.... And if you don't tow that line you're an apologist.
Islam deserves criticism just like the savage unrelenting accepted criticism of Christianity.
Well Islam's not a race so it's quite easy to state that the two aren't comparable. You choose to be a Muslim you can't choose your race.
Islamic male circumcision is analogous but not identical to Jewish circumcision. Islam is currently the largest single religious group in which the practice is widespread
We worry because people are suffering...
Why do you not worry?

I'm more curious why people see a need to defend Islam. It's the fastest growing religion and for some reason promoted celebrated and protected by progressives
Which is fascinating to me.
