So, by Spencer's measure, how many are there?

Reader comment on item: Finding Moderate Muslims - More Questions

Submitted by keith (United States), Oct 13, 2008 at 16:31

This is a very comprehensive list, into which much thought and work has gone. I wonder how many muslims out there actually meet all these criteria. I also find it interesting that he included references in the Quran for several of the items. In view of this I must wonder if there can ever be more than a few muslims that meet these criteria, as it would seem that any that do would scarcely be muslims any more under any careful reading of the Quran. Indeed most muslims that don't meet these criteria would probably regard as apostate any that do. Better for us all if they became Christians, as seems increasingly likely in the long run.
