Bill Maher: Islam is not like other religions...

Real Clear Politics
 h/t: Hot Air

MAHER: But most Muslim people in the world do condone violence just for what you think.
ROSE: How do you know that?
MAHER: They do. First of all they say it. They shout it.
ROSE: Vast majorities of Muslims say that?
MAHER: Absolutely. There was a Pew poll in Egypt done a few years ago — 82% said, I think, stoning is the appropriate punishment for adultery. Over 80% thought death was the appropriate punishment for leaving the Muslim religion. I’m sure you know these things.
ROSE: Well I do. But I don’t believe –
MAHER: So to claim that this religion is like other religions is just naive and plain wrong. It is not like other religious. The New York Times pointed out in an op-ed a couple weeks ago that in Saudi Arabia just since August 4th, they think it was, they have beheaded 19 people. Most for non-violent crimes including homosexuality.
This is not news to anyone who pays the least bit of attention to the facts, but Maher is right about this.

Sorry Mr. President, ISIS is 100% Islamic
I wonder what that first "I" in ISIS stands for?

Is moderate Islam a myth?

  1. Maher made one rhetorical mistake by letting Rose talk about the legendary "moderate" Muslim. When 80% of 'em agree w. the death penalty for leaving the religion, the "moderates" are somewhere around the 90th pctile of the distribution.

    It makes more sense to talk about the views of the median Muslim.

    Which are barbaric.
