Answers to Objections When You Talk About Islam:
BELOW IS a list of responses you are likely to get when talking about the terrifying brilliance of Islam to someone who knows little about it. Most of the responses link to an article giving you suggestions about how to effectively respond. In the next few months, we will add answers to the unlinked ones.
If you ever come across a response not on our list, and you have difficulty answering it, please let us know; we’ll work on it and add it to the list.
The good news is that the responses you will typically get are a fairly small number. You’ll hear the same few objections over and over. When you have some good answers to these objections ready at hand, you will be able to answer smoothly and with poise, without feeling tense or antagonistic.
We’re hoping you will add more possible responses or advice in the comments on the articles linked below. And if you have any possible answers to the unlinked responses below, we’d love to hear them (email us).
A extended version of the following list complete with answers is available at No Compulsion so you could print it out to share with others.
When you talk about Islamic supremacism with people, they are likely to say one of the following:
4. Aren’t you being religiously intolerant? People in this country have a right to worship as they please. Isn’t religious tolerance one of our most important principles?
13. People take what they want from any writings. You can pretty much justify anything if you quote it out of context.
24. You are a xenophobe.
I also have an all-purpose response to any objection you get. Simply ask: “How did you learn about Islam?” Your question will probably reveal to both of you how little the other knows about Islam, and that is a good place to start.
