Islam or Islamist?
Andrew McCarthy asks at National Review Online, "Is our trouble with a religion or an ideology?"
He says that he disagrees with his friend Robert Spencer because he thinks that Islamists can be separated from Islam.
His analysis is correct, but his explanation is wrong.
There is only one truth, but there are many falsehoods. Only truth is "immune from even the possibility of alteration and evolution."
Islam cannot be immutable without being true. Claims that Islam has a definitive absolute expression are not only wrong, but they are also a subtle form of idolatry.
