    Well whichever deluded, selfish, people voted for the criticism of a person via their religion as in principle being worse than the criticism of someone for their race. If that was you then yes, but it was more than you.

    The verses of the quran these so called muslims follow are taken completely out of context. These are stories from 1400 years ago. When people were at old school battles. What battle are these delinquents fighting? These are just excuses to die and kill people and appease the people pulling the strings. Similiar stories I can find about in about the bible. Can find out more if you care about it.
    old arguments that do not help at all

    the verses are there they can be used to promote violence

    Remove the verses and you remove the violence

    You really have to get inside the minds of these attackers whether they even care about these 'verses'.

    Couldn't find the right word to use so I used petty, I hope you get the idea of what I'm saying though.
    I did, I was just being pedantic.

    There is no nice interpretation of asking your soldiers to tear the arms and legs of your enemies, whoever they were.
    Oh right. I guess I didn't understand what you meant by "nice".

    They both count as bigotry.
    It's fine to criticse a religion in the abstract. But it's not acceptable to hate someone just simply for being a religion. Ie, saying 'we should ban all Muslims' is just as bigoted as saying 'we should ban all whites/blacks'.

    Often religions are as much to do with culture, background a a way someone hasbeen brought up as they are to do with genuine belief in a deity.
    Why does it matter how closely they fit the definition of bigotry? If something falls under the definition of bigotry, does that immediately mean it is bad, and always equally bad?
