Responding to Bill Maher on Islam
In response to the massacre in Orlando, Bill Maher criticized conservatives for opposing gun control and criticized liberals for refusing to blame Islam.
As a liberal I can respond: “Sure, radical Islam is a problem but (1) the West provoked them by attacking numerous Muslim countries and by supporting brutal regimes. (2) It’s only a minority of Muslims that are the problem, not Islam in general. Is the problem Islam or is it radical Islam? Or is the problem (fanatical) religion in general? Should we blame all Christians for the evil acts of a few Christians? (3) So what? Should we attack Muslim countries or ban all Muslims from entering?”
