Is There a Historical Muhammad? Let’s Not Be Dismissive of Progressive Muslims!

Regardless of my edgy satire on Islam and Islamism, and my love for Charlie Hebdo, I actually have no opinion on the historical Muhammad.

Actually, it’s more some of the mythological Muhammads represented in tradition that I have a problem with.

Fortunately, it seems a lot of Muslims are pushing back against the sex offender archetype, and purging a lot of the old oral traditions.

This is potentially positive.

As a non-Muslim, I admire those who are hauling their arses up a very difficult mountain right now. It can’t be otherwise than difficult and painful.

Solidarité!
