Nothing is Exempt

Damian Penny:

I don't agree with Hari on many issues, and I don't share his antipathy toward religion - but I have a much bigger problem with anyone who tells me his religious beliefs should be exempt from criticism. Especially when the punishment for "insulting" his faith is torture and death.

What I wrote in 2006:

It is vitally important that the West not put Islam or any other religion off-limits to critical analysis. For only in the West can a person safely write that the obliteration of a Jewish tribe, the taking of sex-slaves, and the confiscation of non-Muslim property is something not to be celebrated and emulated.
