    There are some who think that criticism of Islam is symptomatic of racism, as though there is nothing about Islam which is genuinely worth criticising, and there are those who believe that criticising Islam comes from a lack of knowledge about the religion.

    Personally I have discovered that the more I've learnt about Islam, the more problems I've encountered with it. But to those who regularly dismiss criticism of Islam as deriving from latent xenophobia and not having an honest basis, are there any valid criticisms that you consider Islam is deserving of?

    "It's followed by brown people (so I can't criticise it while holding my faux-liberal racial racist sensitivities)..."

    "It's disliked by my political opponents (so naturally I must defend it)..."

    "It's too perfect and peaceful (that it can be such a pain in my... double standards)..."
