A Reformation Won’t Remove Politics From Islam

“ why some of the most peaceful countries in the Islamic world mix religion and politics” countered easily with “why some of the least peaceful countries in the Islamic world mix religion and politics”

Perhaps the egghead will comprehend this — the danger of mixing religion and politics is that a small handful of self annointed religionists can then say that anyone who disagrees with them is both against the government AND their religion. To wit, I’m a fan of Christianity but I would never want it to also be the government I live under. The Middle Ages shouldnt be a model, nor excuse, for the world we live in today so just drop that cooked up logic that attempts to justify keeping Islam rooted in the 6th century and that the rest of the world should simply get over it.
