Re: [humanism-174] Islamophobia?

Nathan Lean really digs into the New Atheists but  offers absolutely nothing to rebut the legitimate criticisms  leveled by them against fundamentalist Islam.  Perhaps he finds 9/11, the oppression of women, the persecution of atheists and the general worldview offered by Sharia law to be just fine with him. He should clarify position on this topic in a follow up article.  Until  that time he is just a theist with a chip on his shoulder with nothing substantial to bring to the debate.
