    Caveat: just as it’s too facile for certain strains of Christian activists to say “Christians good, Muslims bad,” it’s also just as facile and just as wrong to say “Muslims good, Christians bad” notwithstanding the man-bites-dog appeal of such a claim.

    In my experience, most people are, mostly, good people. Both their avowed and actual faiths (or lack thereof) have very little to do with the moral worth of the things they do in the world. And it really isn’t all that hard to find the loud and obnoxious whackjobs in any group and all groups have them.

    In the meantime, the article linked in the OP is indeed touching, and supports my thesis that most people are, mostly, good people.Report

      Every now and then, I’m glad sarcasm tags aren’t actually a thing. I can just choose to read this as an entirely sincere comment, and there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it.Report
