The freedom to think out loud on certain topics, without fear of being hounded into hiding or killed, has already been lost.
And the only forces on earth that can recover it are strong, secular governments that will face down charges of blasphemy with scorn.
No apologies necessary. Muslims must learn that if they make belligerent and fanatical claims upon the tolerance of free societies, they well meet the limits of that tolerance.

Confirmation Bias works in Islam too.

Surah Ar-Rahman (55):

37. When the sky is torn apart, so it is (like) a red rose, like ointment

38. Then which of the favours of your Lord will you deny?

Humans wander around looking at things saying: “That looks like a rose” or similar.
OK, so it looks like a rose.  What about the rest of the sentence. Was the sky torn apart?
This didn’t happen in the sky, this happened in space. In what way is it like ointment.
