Please stay on topic. If you’re interested in discussing other aspects of the question, start another thread.

I’m just going to delete stuff outright if it’s OT here.

The Guardian and most of the SJW types for a start. I consider myself a liberal, but the level of double standards on the left towards Islam is borderline racist.

These are all very powerful arguments defending Islam. They are the usual suspects, of course.

But, other religions are bad.
But, not all Muslims are the same. As if criticising a religious ideology is criticising people.
But, the west picks on Islam more than other religions.
Therefore, don’t criticise Islam?


#184

Other religions are not causing problems in the West right now. Why can’t people seem to get this? If Hindus were coming over and causing terror for shiva, I’m sure people would stigmatize it.

It seems there is no more interest in discussing the issue in the OP. I’m locking this–PM me if you want to reopen it, or feel free to start a thread on other issues.
