Everything is impossibly complicated

Do Unto Others

I’ve had some discussions where I’ve tried to defend Muslims against being painted with a broad stroke as following a religion that inherently produces evil. Sometimes in the course of those discussions, I’ll make some argument against my opponent based on what the structure of his/her beliefs appears to be–based both on other things the person said and assumptions about what the person might believe based on group affiliation. Trying to make those kinds of arguments then results in an angry rebuff in the form of: “I hate it when people assume they know what I believe!”

But wait…isn’t that what you’re doing to Muslims?
