Intelligence Squared Debate: Is Islam a religion of peace?
Here is Ayaan Hirsi Ali debating whether or not Islam is a religion of peace. I spend an inordinate amount of time debating this with people, but unlike Ayaan, I haven’t had first hand experience in the violence and misogyny of Islam.
I’m sick of the argument politics is responsible for the violence of this religion. Why is everyone ignoring the elephant in the room? The actions of the religious may be political, but Islam is not a religion that makes a strong distinction between religion and government.
