To far too many adherents, it’s not a faith . . . it’s an ideology. A totalitarian ideology that can’t tolerate noncompliance and always seeks to impose itself on others

Is it even possible? Should we just give up? Maybe Islam really is the one true religion. I’m thinking of converting. Maybe you should too.
