When referring to the south before the Civil War, many people often say that not all southerners owned slaves. However many of these same people disagree that all Muslims are not terrorists. Is there a logical explanation for this inconsistency?

It's not fair to generalize.

Most southerners didn't own slaves, most Muslims aren't terrorists.

True, most people realize this, sad it isn't today's common knowledge.

Deliberate obtusity? (That might not be a real word, but I like it).

Even if they aren't southerners, it could be a U.S. Vs them thing and an inability to extend logical discourse all the way to its conclusion. Of course, not all people are like that (though many do exist)

That being said, a society built around slave labor, and where many jurisdictions banned abolitionist speech and press, doesn't need every participant to own a slave for it to be a significant factor in a society-let alone where it's own leaders say

That the reason they're rebelling is tied to that and the threat it would be taken away.

They are just... special. I wish I could laugh at this more but I sadly see this far too often.

Too broad a brush stroke here, I think.

Sorry, that was worded weirdly. *not all Muslims are terrorists.

I don't know of anyone that thinks all Muslims are terrorists.

My extended family does. And I've met many others who are likeminded.

Hey, Nemmy! Speaking of holy books, how's that search for the no-meat-on-Fridays verse coming along?

Ha! You're probably right. So much "wife-knowing" and "begetting" in Genesis. Well, keep me posted!
