A message to all of the idiotic talking heads and assorted others of the Left:
Islam is not a race.
Islam is a religion.
There are White Muslims.
There are Black Muslims.
There are Arab Muslims.
There are Asian Muslims.
There are Chinese, American, Uzbek, Kyrgyz, Tajik, Irani, Afghan, Russian, French, British, Paki, Punjabi, Indian, Indonesian, Malay, Thai, Cham, Khmer and German Muslims. There are probably even a couple of Mexican Muslims out there somewhere.
Even if I absolutely HATE all Muslims, I am not a racist. A racist is a person who hates other races or believes that their race is superior to other races.
If I do not like Islam, I am still not a racist. Islam is a religion. It is not a race. I repeat; ISLAM IS A RELIGION. ISLAM IS NOT A RACE.
I have Muslim friends who are White, Black, Asian and Arab who live in America. They range from folks who were born in and grew up in America to Afghans who emigrated to America after helping US Forces fight the Taliban and assorted other insurgents in the Afghan War.
Again, idiots, Islam is a religion. It is not a race.
If I abhor all religions does that make me Islamophobic? No, I do not fear Islam any more than I fear Christianity. I see all religions as an affront to humanity. I see all religions as a direct assault on humanity, on love, on peace and on brotherhood. Religion creates division. Religion creates hatred. Religion condemns. Religion is the single greatest source of tension and conflict between human beings in the history of humanity. Religion is evil. Pure evil. It is deception. It is a lie.
Even so, my beliefs as expressed above do not mean that I hate one single human being. I simply detest the beliefs that have been programmed into their minds via the ignorance of their parents, family and environment.
You are only Christian because you were born in a Christian region. You are only Muslim because you were born in a Muslim region. The same is true of all religions and all people with a minuscule exception. Even those who convert to one religion from another do so based on having been programmed to need a God and an exterior guiding moral force.
You are made to believe that you need a God. You do not. You need no religion to be moral. You need only listen to your soul.
Again, Islam is not a race. It is a religion.
Christianity is, likewise, a religion and not a race.
The next time you feel that you need to use the term Islamophobia or you feel you need to call someone a racist because they make negative statements about Islam, stop, shut your mouth, form your hand into a fist and hit yourself in the face.
