    “On HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, Sam Harris and Ben Affleck clashed in a heated debate over ‘Islamophobia’ and criticism of Islam. The core of Harris’s argument was that “we have to be able to criticize bad ideas” and that criticizing Islam, which he termed “the motherlode of bad ideas,” was not akin to “bigotry towards Muslims as people.” “
