Down the Right Path

I have to say I'm extremely heartened to see Andrew Sullivan's post on Islam and Locke (and not because of the link back to me):
Keep sending me moderate Muslim statements. They matter. And they are too often drowned out.
And this from one of the more vociferous defenders of the Danish cartoons. Maybe he's turned a corner. Maybe he realizes that the flipside of criticizing negative manifestations of Islam is bolstering the positive ones.

Anyway, let's take him up on that offer. Send him whatever you've got on moderate Muslims—that'll stick it to the Iron Mullahs and xenophobic bigots at the same time, and that sounds just about perfect in my book.
