TheraminTrees Describes How and Why He Stopped Defending Islam as a Religion of Peace

In his latest video, TheraminTrees explores his changing views on Islam — and the ex-Muslims who helped him understand why he could no longer speak positively of the faith.

What was once, in his mind, a pro-science religion that promoted peace turned into a religion that treated women poorly, discriminated against LGBT people, and detested blasphemers. It wasn’t just the extremists who felt this way. It was part of the package for even the so-called moderates he knew.

“Getting to know a religion is about seeing how its ideas shape the lives it touches,” he says. And the way Islam shaped the Muslims he knew — on certain issues that he felt were beyond debate — was something he could no longer defend.
