Who’s Who in Islam: Bigots, Reformers, Apologists/Regressives, Religious Sociopaths

Where Are the Muslim Reformers?  All over. They’re blogging, they’re forming societies, some are apostates, some have kept the faith, some live in the West, some live in their home countries. Some have been assassinated, imprisoned, or receive tangible death threats. We need to focus on Reformers. The fact that many need pseudonyms speaks to the problem. Even Marwa Berro, an atheist who blogs against her forced veiling and Muslim upbringing, needed a couple years of freedom before she wrote under her real name. So what’s the problem?

The Dialectic:  The ideological tension between humanism and extremism regarding Islam.

Who Helps the Cause? – The Reformers engage in the dialectic between benevolent and evil ideology to promote universal ideals of human decency. The Politically Incorrect and Well-Intentioned have flaws, yet stand with the cause.

The Cause:  Peace.

Almost Regressive:Mona Eltahawy (for bigoted Tweet) was taken off Reformers. She’s done good work, but turns out she holds racist and bigoted views. Too bad. Can’t put her with the likes of Greenwald, but she’s let a lot of good people down.

Reformer vs. Politically Incorrect Reformer

Who Hurts the Cause? –  The Soft Moderates/Apologists who have a Potemkin Village view of Islam. They mistake religion for race and make false analogies. Their religious chauvinism amounts to bigotry. Though they care about stopping evil, they struggle to define the root causes as they champion the bromides of  political correctness and moral placebos. They end up hurting the ideals of the Reformers. CAIR and the Soft Moderates/Apologists protect the bigotry of their religion.

“Jihadism has gone from fringe cult to a mass movement because non-violent extremists have too often gone unchallenged.”Ghaffar Hussain, managing director of Quilliam

Bigots:  The Bigots go after all Muslims without compulsion, some stand for freedom and democracy, though as absolutists. They hate all Muslims, and fail to quantify.

Polemics:  Both Lost Moderates and Bigots exacerbate the polemics. Regardless, the main enemies are the Religious Sociopaths, who hate everyone but themselves.

Regressives/Apologists:  Unlike Reformers, none of these people/groups have been threatened with death by Islamic radicals. They falsely claim to be progressive or moderate. Their stand for human rights fails because they either fear religion, or they support apostasy and blasphemy laws, homophobia, religious chauvinism (Jiyza tax), misogyny (sexual slavery), and other polemical topics clearly delineated in religion:
