If you think that only new atheists are progressive you are incredibly, incredibly naive.

Please, I swear everyone on this site always starts off what could have been a thoughtful discussion with personal insults - do not call me naive, be more respectful and keep it based in factual discussion.

There's not another word to describe it.

Do you have any backing whatsoever for your belief that only new atheists are progressive?

If someone is willing to defend Islamic doctrine (as many liberals are) and is still willing to call themselves progressive then the term regressive, I think, is very appropriate. I am looking at this from a UK perspective even though the main debate is going on in the US, and one of the examples I see is Jeremy Corbyn (who is on the left and holds many liberal principles) who praises Islamic values and all that dribble - refusing to see any link between islam and violence/illiberal principles. He obviously thinks he is progressive and so, almost as an insult, I would call him a regressive - as he doesn't stick to progressive ideas.

I am being serious right now: have a discussion on Islam with Skepsikyma.

I really can't be fucked to get into a full on debate - maybe later when I feel like shouting at someone, lol
