How do you square that with the San Bernardino case?" Kelly asked.Christie responded, "you can do it without profiling, Megyn. You do it on the facts. What those folks knew was that these folks had … [Read more...]

CJ Werleman Calls New Atheists “White Supremacists”

Screen Shot 2014-08-08 at 10.26.22 PM

In a recent series of Tweets, CJ Werleman has attempted to call New Atheists to task. His usual kinds of arguments against anti-theism have, to me, occasionally merited a brief mention behind the likes of Reza Aslan or Glenn Greenwald. But now I feel Harris might have taken the most appropriate actions with Werleman by vowing never to write about him again. Sometimes, however, the temptation is just too great. I'm not writing about CJ's words in this instance in the hope to debunk them, as I … [Read more...]

Why The Number of “Good Followers” Of A Faith Doesn’t Matter

There has been a talking point that has recently become the clarion call of religious apologists and New Atheist witch-hunters like Reza Aslan and CJ Werleman, which is that it doesn't matter that Islam is interpreted by evil people as a license to do evil things, as 1.18 billion other Muslims follow the same creeds and don't commit atrocities. This is also loosely lumped in with the "it has nothing to do with Islam" sentiment. "Atrocities," I suppose, has a wide definition. One can see how tem … [Read more...]

Yale Humanist group was wrong in trying to silence free speech rights

Ayaan Hirsi Ali

There was a lot of controversy this week over Ayaan Hirsi Ali speaking at Yale University. Originally Yale’s Muslim Students Association (MSA) spoke out against Hirsi Ali speaking claiming she lacked the credentials to speak on Islamic matters.This came as no surprise given that Hirsi Ali is critical of Islam and the MSA would want to do everything to silence any speech that criticized their faith. What did seem to shock everyone, as JT Eberhard points out, was to see the Yale H … [Read more...]

Military force will not stop ISIS and neither will ‘convert or kill’

Iraq_ISIS_Abu_Wahe_2941936b

Much has been written about Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame over his comments to either convert or kill ISIS members, telling Sean Hannity on Fox News: “In this case, you either have to convert them, which I think would be next to impossible,” Robertson explained. “I’m just saying convert them or kill them — one or the other. " Strangely his message matches theirs almost perfectly, as ISIS is trying to force others to their brand of Islam or face death. Obviously the irony is lost on Robert … [Read more...]
