Dear @SamHarrisOrg, you often claim that you're not attacking Muslims, the people, only Islam, the idea or faith. But that's not true, otherwise, how do you explain saying "Muslim immigrants" demand "tolerance for their backwardness, their misogyny, their anti-Semitism"?

This is a dumb take.

Saying "I'm against the evils of this religion, not people" and "Some of these immigrants who have the religion are going to spread the evils of it." are not contradictory statements

For the record I'm not saying Harris is right or wrong, I'm saying those two stances intertwine
^ Hey now that's completely woke!

After watching some of Mehdi Hassan’s interview with Richard Dawkins, I just don’t pay any attention to him. He did embarrassingly bad.
Screw your dogma, I'm a cat person.

But immigrants are not religions; they are human beings. It sounds like Sam Harris thinks Islam is evil, and therefore that Muslims are more evil on average than non-Muslims.

The following two statements, for instance, are contradictory:

1. I don't criticize people who practice Islam.

2. People shouldn't practice Islam because it is evil.

@UnfairRepresent

Oof, late to the party. Was looking through old replies.

For context, I don’t reply to PokemonExpert44. You can search up the interview for yourself if you want but I’m not going to address the troll again.
