Attacking Islam is not the same as attacking Muslims.

Which is exactly why I wrote:

No, those statements are not equivalent. Really.

You are saying applying a broad brush to Muslims is not attacking Islam; I am saying that attacking Islam is not attacking all Muslims.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

I didn't say they were equivalent. I said that your concern was why I wrote what I wrote: that I understand the difference between attacking the religion and attacking the person. I should think that would be obvious to a person of your intelligence.

And yes, I hold that broad-brushing an entire swathe of people based on the actions of a tiny minority is a form of attacking that group. Hope that helps.

So, you don't care about those poor people including children who are beheaded, burned, crucified and raped by radical Islamists?
Or you simply have no balls to say something about Muhammad?

RE: Why are so many people afraid to attack Islam?
I have a question.
Where on this forum I can find a thread about Muslims being ridiculed by atheists and with funny cartoons about Muhammad?

How can I not? Muslim metaphysics are every bit as absurd as Christian idiots.
