Everywhere I turn there is someone defending Islam, claiming it's being unfairly picked on, claiming people saying bad things about Islam is like or could lead to .
I am sick of people turning this whole criticism of Islam-as-a-garbage-religion into a cricitism about arabs and subsequently calling it racism. Opposing religion - any religion - is, first of all, not racism.
“The so-called ‘psychotically depressed’ person who tries to kill herself doesn’t do so out of quote ‘hopelessness’ or any abstract conviction that life’s assets and debits do not square. And surely not because death seems suddenly appealing. The person in whom Its invisible agony reaches a certain unendurable level will kill herself the same way a trapped person will eventually jump from the window of a burning high-rise.
It's deeply misguided to criticize the New Atheists for attacking Islam and branding it as an especially pernicious faith. It's even more misguided to label them as racist "Islamophobes". Such critics are in fact erecting a double standard for human rights, as Islam is clearly more oppressive than other major faiths, and more eager to impose its religious "truths" on others.
