The progressive media consensus frequently finds the truth to be "divisive" -- by which they mean "contrary to the solidarity of the Democrat/Socialist alliance" -- and this is yet another case of that.
But there are dissident voices.
Bill Maher not only trashes Charlie Rose's Progressive Happy Shut-Up Talk on Islam as false and "naive" -- but he goes on to also trash Rose's insistence that "extremist Christians" are just as bad as Islamic Jihadists.
Bill Maher plainly despises conservative Christians, which makes his refutation of Rose's false claim all the more potent.
Maher is contemptuous of believing Christians -- But he will not accept the palpably false claims by Rose and other Happy Talk Warriors that believing Christians are engaging in female genital mutilation and murder of "apostates."
Sam Harris, another atheist, has every political reason to claim that "all religions are just exactly alike and just as bad about encouraging violence."
But he doesn't claim that, because it's not true, and he is one of the few progressives who think that a claim's patent falsity ought to count against it a bit.
