They act as if Islam is a race.
It's just as annoying as being called anti-semitic.
Judaism is not a race. Just like islam is not a race.
I don't care about their cultures either. They mean nothing to me.
I loathe ALL religions equally.
I don't give a shit what anyone calls me because of it.
People are stupid. Most of the time, they don't even understand
the words they're using.
no, because that doesn't happen to me. i criticize what islamists do and what christian evangelists do, not muslims and christians. i do not criticize islam and christianity separately because they're both religions so i may criticize religion, but only when it is pushed on me (or here, where people are into it). i have never been called an islamophobe because i am not only not one, i cannot be mistaken for one.
No, it's not annoying. It just provides another opportunity to study stupidity. I make it clear that the only thing I have a problem with is the primary hate in the holy texts of all religions that contain it and the primary hate in the manifestos and other literature of any other ideologies that contain it, and I also make the point that while the people who endorse any of the containers of that hate are part of the causal mechanism behind that hate's capacity to generate abuses all the way up to genocide, they are not themselves to be hated for it as they too are victims of that hate. But no matter how clearly I spell that out, if I comment on Islam I automatically get irate R-souls calling me a Nazi. I don't get that when I make the same comments about Nazis and other groups which endorse primary hate - it only happens with Islam because these R-souls have taken it upon themselves to defend one brand of hate in a biased way. They portray themselves as the tolerant, good people while all those who disagree with them are necessarily Nazis. They are certainly tolerant in that they're tolerating some hate which they should not be tolerating, but they are highly intolerant of those who condemn all hate.
Two things, I criticize all kinds of religions without being call Islamophobic or others like it. Because I can criticize a religion without crossing the line that gets you called that.
Second, what the hell is regressive left supposed to mean? What a nonsense term.
I learned a while back that the world is full of dicks who will find fault with whatever I do. So I quit really giving a shit about the mentally and emotionally weak who get offended by my different way of thinking. Life is far too short and precious to waste on people who cannot control their own reactions when someone dares to see things differently than they do.
