← The problem in public life isn’t Islam, but religion itself

I'm not passed the first para and already it's not looking good for Team Delusional. Judges and thinkers versus two cosplays and trumpeter swans. Shit kicking? I'll read on.

EDIT: That didn't take long. No shit kicking. Nothing really. Kind of a preamble.

We’re entering an age when Muslims are no longer seen as alien outsiders but as ordinary participants in public life. If earlier public hysteria over their beliefs had a benefit, though, it was in making us all realize the value of a neutral, secular public life.

I actually have never thought much of the concept of outsider until recently. My home town is really easy; I've lived around Canada. Muslims were just other people, like every other person. Now that we talk about it. I see them as outsiders.
