I am not a religious scholar or religious man

but I am a  man.

I just watched an interesting video featuring Ben Affleck, Bill Maher,  from the television show “Real Time”.

The debate in the video between Bill Maher and Ben Affleck was whether or not a critical view of Islam was Islam a phobia. I am really not sure if that is a word Islam a Phobia, however it means bigotry of the Islam religion.

Bill and his guest argue that some of the core of the Islam religion is degrading to women and intolerant. The host and his guest point out that much of the Liberal society has no issue addressing the catholic religion but will not “touch” the Islam religion. Ben Affleck demonstrates this point with his comments in the video.

In the video he makes the comment that he is not a religious scholar. Ben says this and he is not and neither am I. So not being a religious scholar he and I cannot weigh in on the religion as a whole. That being said I would like to draw your attention to the title of this post.

I am not a religious scholar or religious man but I am a man, or a person. So I can weigh in on matters of being human and when one group of humans makes it ok to take away the human rights of another group than the group doing this is wrong and the reasons for it (if you want peace) have to be addressed and looked at even if this means you may be engaging in what people feel is Islam a phobia. The same had to be done for Christian faith and the justification for the crusades.
