No advocating the adoption of any particular IAL. You can talk about
IAL's themselves all you want; la verda stelo is symbolic of the
movement, not the lang.
Similarly, while Hanuman's thread veered dangerously crossward, that
wasn't Hanuman's fault just because he brought up Islam as a topic.
Certainly, talking about things like whether or not Muslims say "Amin"
is perfectly OK. Suggesting that anyone who does or doesn't share a
particular faith is somehow inferior and/or doomed to an eternity of
torment in the afterlife, not so OK.
The line is not always clear, of course. Just use your best judgment.
