It’s a solidly valid point, you can’t claim he wasn’t pious enough to be a jihadi because he was a homosexual, drank alcohol etc., while you claim Islam is inherently peaceful (gag, wheeze, cough) and therefor hasn’t anything to do with the acts of these jihadis.

My main points of disagreement with Nawaz, Irshad Manji, as well as with MoZJ (Zuhdi Jasser) and others like them, is the notion that Islam can be both enlightened and reformed. With the benefit of hindsight, Islam knows where any such enlightenment and reform will lead, and will reject each and every attempt made…..ending in blood.
It’s pure fantasy.
