Secular Talk

The fight against religious extremism is nuanced and complex.  There don’t seem to be easy, cut-and-dried answers.

During his remarks at today’s White House Summit on Countering Violent Extremism, President Barack Obama answered critics directly by laying out exactly why he and members of his administration do not use the word “Islamic” to describe extremist terrorist groups like Al Qaeda and ISIS.

Perhaps religion is sometimes to blame, though that does not give Americans the right to jump in and immediately start a war.
