20. Welcome to DU, mystique!

I would say that any faith that demands adherence to dogma is toxic to rational thought and incompatible with democracy. Islam is inherently no better and no worse in this regard than Christianity.

Any faith that declares a belief, tradition, or ritual to be beyond question is suspect and should be shunned; those who profess special wisdom or authority regarding such a religion should be afforded only minimal trust. Again, Islam is no better and no worse.

More important, what do you think of Islam?
