Following the revelation that the Secular Party is a racist ‘Ban the Burqa’ party in disguise, I cast my mind to the peculiar social phenomenon regarding pop-atheist critiques of Islam. It runs something like this:
- Pop-atheist identifies an unpleasant aspect of Islam which has a direct comparison in non-Islamic society.
- Pop-atheist damns Islam for having the unpleasant aspect.
- Pop-atheist ignores non-Islamic counterpart.
