Humanist:

so, if "moderate" is the synonym for "non-violent", do you use the term for all religious adherents, or just in a biased manner applied to Islam..? Oh, and is an non-violent atheist also "moderate"? How about you, are you a moderate humanist?

Today, there was another school shooting - a darn near epidemic nowadays (and I am waiting for the nomenclature for this "syndrome", lol) - can we now say that most students in the US are moderates?

By the way, you'll forgive me if I don't by the "I know a lot of them" line regarding Muslims if you really, really assume that Muslims' normal lives equate to them not following Islam. I know a lot of them, and we all live normal lives devoutly adhering to Islam.
