Discussion of Islam on Real Time
Maher starts by interviewing Sam Harris on Islam and ISIS and then the discussion gets heated. Maher and Harris point out that Islam has a lot of bad ideas, like treating women as property and gays like a disease. And it's not just radical Muslims, its the majority that hold these beliefs. Ben Affleck thinks that to hold all Muslims responsible for the radical actions of ISIS is racist. What Affleck does not address is that the majority do in fact hold beliefs contrary to liberal values, like those mentioned above.
