So it's been a couple of years and I have some things to say.
I probably oversold the influence of Islamic doctrine, but continue to hold basically the same position regarding the ills of religious dogmatism. Of course, religious dogmatism is much further down the list of important problems that we are facing than it was even 2 years ago. [I'll add that those who might have disagreed with my argument about the Islamic religion holding some blame for the behaviour of the minority of bad Muslims are likely to make the exact same argument now when it comes to white nationalism. I.e., the vast majority of white nationalists don't murder anyone, but the ideology is still relevant to the outliers and therefore requires sustained criticism.]
At any rate, legitimate Islamophobia is now certainly a more significant problem than Islamic religious dogmatism. I did not anticipate this and I feel bad about it. I don't know what role the "criticism" of Islam (from people like Sam Harris, etc.) played in all this - certainly less than Trump and the rise of nationalism - but I am not happy about my association with this sort of thing. (I was always pro-immigration... it helps people escape theocracies and benefit from secularism)
In short, we are at a point where criticizing Islam (reminder: not Muslims, but Islam) probably does more damage than good. It emboldens racists and, anyway, probably cannot be done in such a way that it would be easily separable from racism for the target audience of the criticism. I freely admit that this might have been the case 2-3 years ago as well, but I just didn't see it. So, mea culpa.
