Glaring example is your total defense of Fatimid belief preachers and resultant behaviors of their followers.
........ But Surprised to read your arguments in favour of bohra clergy, which surpresses such freedoms in deceptive ways.
Please be specific. I mean, please quote from my posts that with which you are so pissed off.
I am unable to pin down what your objections are.
I defend the freedom of a cult and its leaders who have succeeded in getting followers as long as they operate within the laws of a country. I do not defend their beliefs but would seek to explain them.
This comment applies to cults in Western Democracies and other liberal democracies that have laws which are protected by the legal system impartially. That excludes all Muslim countries except a few marginally such as Turkey, Indonesia and Malaysia.
I have made it clear that just as I defend the rights of an individual to belong to a cult, I also defend the right of ex-cult members to live freely without persecution from the cultists. But, if a person wants to remain in the cult and complain about it, then he must feel that there is a machinery within the cult to address his complaint. If there is no such machinery, as it appears to be in the Bohra cult, then the complainant has himself to blame by remaining within the cult. Nothing can be done about that by outsiders.
