Ayaan Hirsi Ali has quickly become one of my favorite speakers on the subject of religion, especially the not-so-peaceful-as-it-turns-out Islam.

There are two short clips here. The first is Ayaan answering an audience question about what Islam has to say about the education of women. I found Ayaan’s response to be very smart and powerful and I hope that it will happen someday.

The second clip is her closing statement for the whole debate, which sums up religion in general, but more specifically, Islam. People seem to have a problem differentiating between the religion and the people of the religion. When people are saying the religion of Islam is not peaceful, they are not talking about the people. It is possible that most of the people are peaceful, but the religion itself is not, and the people of our current day are simply not practicing the religion the same way (which is good).

Let me know what you think in the comments.
