In this episode of Reason at Large, Craig Biddle answers the question, "You've argued that people should be intolerant of Islam. How does this apply to individual Muslims, not all of whom truly or fully embrace Islam?"

In answering, Biddle discusses the need to account for the context of a given Muslim (or other religionist) and the degree to which he acts in accordance with the tenets of his religion; and he explains why all religionists should be judged as immoral precisely to the extent that they embrace faith as a means of knowledge, renounce their rational and thus moral faculty, and turn to "authorities" for moral dictates.
