The real issue is not with Islam, or any religion, for that matter. It’s with those who co-opt spiritual passion for political purposes. That is the disease. It’s symptoms are found in quasi-religious activities that demonize pregnant mothers seeking abortion, stone chattel brides who deny their abusive husbands, slander the character of immigrant workers, heap social scorn on homeless victims of the GOP Great Depression, vilify inconvenient scientific theory…….. The list goes on and on and reads like a GOP political campaign strategy manual.
