The point I'm trying (and apparently, failing!) to make is that we don't conflate the abhorrent beliefs and behaviours of some Christian sects with the whole of Christianity; so why would we do that with Islam?


I've explained multiple times but you seem unable to understand.

A Christian parent telling their gay child that homosexuality is wrong because they have misunderstood the teachings of their religion is a bad thing, obviously. But that's life. When the child is old enough to be independent they can at least escape that.

A Muslim killing their gay child because their religion tells them to - that's something that no civilised society should accept.

Simple question so I expect a simple answer, would you be willing to at least tolerate the first scenario even if you don't like it? Same question for the second scenario, would you be willing to tolerate that even though you don't like it?
