Check Out James Croft’s Response to Me

Well, me and James Croft are officially pen-pals!

A year ago James Croft wrote an article about how to criticize religions responsibly, and about a month ago I wrote an open letter to James in response to that article. I didn’t strongly disagree with him but took an issue with one of his points, and now he has written back, an article called We Must Criticize Islam – Responsibly.

Like always, it’s eloquent, nuanced, reasonable, and very admirable in the moral sentiment. I think this exchange between me and James can be a very good example of a rational and civil exchange of ideas carried out with mutual respect. I feel very proud to be part of it.

Thank you, James.
