Behind the façade of "moderate Islam"
A look at what the imams are really preaching to their flocks. Notice the usual tired accusations that anyone who reveals what Muslims are actually doing and saying is "intensifying" a "witch hunt" against them.
This particular example is from Britain, but I see no reason to think things are much different here.
Individualist, transhumanist, American patriot, socialist, atheist, liberal, optimist, pragmatist, and regular guy -- it has been my great good fortune to live my whole life free of "spiritual" concepts of any kind. I believe that evidence and reason are the keys to understanding reality; that it is technology rather than ideology or politics that has been the great liberator of humanity; and that in the long run human intelligence is the most powerful force in the universe.
