    It's the same on TSR. One can say that Ukip voters are retarded ********s, but don't try to criticize Muslims.

    Isn't that logic disproven in the sense that there are many self-styled Christians and Muslims who barely care about their religion and hardly practise it, whereas there are plenty of people who dedicate their entire lives to their political beliefs?
    well, I'd say my parents are self-styled muslims - they don't pray, they disregard some minor rules, but if I pointed that out and told them they aren't really muslims because they don't pray 5 times a day, they would have my head. I'd say that's because they are overly attached to the idea of religion - any criticism is seen as extremely offensive.
