He attacks the ideology he presents as if any other interpretation of it couldn’t possibly be equally valid and fails to qualify his attack with actual specifics.

For example he could mention Francis Collins as a Christian with moderate theology and compare it to Ken Ham’s theology, but the problem with that is it starts poking holes in Harris’ neat no true Scotsman he erects. His stereotyping and generalization falls flat, but c’est la vie.

This makes zero sense.

Yes, he could have mentioned Francis Collins as an example of a religious moderate. Let's suppose he did that, now what? Where's the No True Scotsman?
