Islam in the boring real world
Overview of the divisions among US Muslims, and some points which should be obvious about them not all knowing each other, understanding each other, or being able to influence each other.

Link thanks to mindstalk.

A little snark about whether you can be an expert on a religion by finding out about the worst bits in their holy writings.

The first half dozen comments on that last link are more thoughtful, if not more helpful, than I'd expect the question to warrant. Interesting group of people.

I get this "perhaps you know so and so" all the time, and that's just 'cuz' I'm a furriner. I think it's a basic cognitive issue.

That "Picador" guy commenting at the second link is an astonishing idiot.

Or, now that I think about it, a troll. The name is a giveaway -- a picador is one of the guys in a Spanish bullfight who jabs the bull with a lance to make the fight more exciting.
