Perhaps if GTL could provide the quote that prompted the accusation the rest of us could make up our own minds?

I wish he would, as to my knowledge I have never posted anything that might be inferred to be racist.

If you are being accused of something you have the right to see the evidence against you, if it is not forthcoming the obvious conclusion will be that it does not exist.

No evidence then. I await your apology with bated breath.

I must reluctantly agree with Glorify the Lord on this.

Perhaps 'racism' is not the ideal word, but it serves, merely from lack of another? better describing the deeply ill-informed bigotry contained in so many anti-Islamic comments posted here.

What I find more pitiable is the reaction of these 'liberal' bigots to the hatred and contempt their words/actions inspire.

Pathetic posturing about education (read brainwashing?), with repeated suggestions that those who reject their ' slime to the grave/sodomy is liberation' ideology, do so from lack of intelligence?

BUT it's these same 'liberals' who've been murdering/terminating their children for three generations, thrown open their homeland to mass immigration by millions of the most devoutly religious people on the planet; while encouraging the practice of every depravity and vice known to the Devil and his Demons, amongst their own kin.

Even more incredible, with now aged/dwindling populations, bankrupt economies, shattered industries and ill-equipped/undermanned armies; the 'Liberal' NOW blindly cheers the unprovoked invasion of the Islamic heartlands; from which his immigrant 'neighbours' come?

You missed half your quote - Quem deus vult perdere, dementat prius =)

Hello C.A Small,

I certainly don't think you have any intention of being racist, and I don't think we can rely on glorify the LORD's judgement in this matter. However, I have seen a few somewhat sweeping statements that could be construed as racist (for example, the one about the Jews which I responded to you on) and, with the greatest respect, would suggest that occasionally you might want to think about how you are phrasing things.

I only mention this because you are obviously upset that you could be seen as racist, because this isn't your intention, and I thought you might wish to know if someone had gotten that impression.

-"Perhaps 'racism' is not the ideal word, but it serves, merely from lack of another? better describing the deeply ill-informed bigotry contained in so many anti-Islamic comments posted here."

That word would be bigotry then, except that I cannot help but notice that all the anti-Islamic feelings are directed towards:
a. Specific acts of violence perpetrated by self declared Muslims
b. Specific rules that appear in Islamic texts

Racism has bugger all to do with this and gtL is a loony. Just as barmy as yourself it seems, because in the end both K.Hoyles, C.A.Small and others have expressed their opposition to religions in general and Islam in particular so there is nothing racist about this.

I dislike the religion of Islam; I find it primitive, barbaric and utterly without merit. I have no problem with Muslims practicing their faith so long as they bloody well realise that in this country their rights stop when they impinge on another's. This means they have to recognise my right to criticise their beliefs. There is no blasphemy law in this country.

Jennifer I replied to your post from an I phone and nothing is on the forum so either my abilities or the Iphones have failed.

Jews from the US, UK, and other parts of Europe use the holocaust as a shield every time some one criticises their religion. Whether it be the vile insistence on kosher food, the insistence on genital mutilation of their male babies or the insistence that Israel is immune from respecting the Palestinians ( and I am very aware the abuse is in both directions and condemn them both).

The jewish lobby in the US and the UK is disproportionately influential. They can believe whatever the hell they want until it impinges on children's and animal's welfare.

I have no particular beef against the jews apart from on the usual grounds , which they share with all daft sky fairy believers. Are all jews pro Israel's stance on their "homeland", no, just as not all eat kosher food of mutilate their children. But enough are to make it a problem, and since jewish communities seem to like self ghettoising, and their business practices are racist in the extreme, I am fully within my rights to challenge them. It is not racist , it is fact, and atheistic and anti-theistic, it is anti animal cruelty ad anti child abuse. To cry "racism" is the mark of someone who cannot challenge the argument from any other perspective. It is only racist in intent if it is not true.

I like that term "anti-theistic", it implies being very fed up with religion rather than not believing in it. I may well start using the term myself. Who do I pay royalties to?

C. A. Small -

I don't agree with everything in this email, but that's beside the point, and I'm not going to argue politics with you. There's no need to cast aspersions such as in your next to last statement, or to be aggressive towards me. You asked a question, and I answered you (as carefully as I could, please note) that in my opinion it was possible to infer racism from your posts. I'm sorry if you have been upset by response, but you did ask.

I queried you on your post regarding the Jews (and bring it up again) not because you were critical of something Jewish, or the behaviour of some Jews, but because of your careless language; specifically your non-specific and blanket condemnation of 'the Jews'. By all means, criticise Zionists. By all means, criticise the practice of kosher killing, which is cruel (I personally find meat eating in its entirety abhorrent and unnecessary). However, when making the criticism make sure that you are criticising the group carrying it out, not all Jews (who, as we know, are not all supportive of Israel or it's behaviour, or all kosher eaters etc etc etc).

C. A. Small says:
How many non- jews condone the behaviour towards the Palestinians?

The last but one statement was not aimed at you, I have re-read it and apologise if you took it that way.

It was aimed at those who when criticised cry "racism" when it is nothing of the sort.

Hi C. A. Small -

"How many non- jews condone the behaviour towards the Palestinians?"

What does that have to do with anything? Really? I don't understand your reasoning in bringing this up.

Besides, the statement I was querying wasn't directly related to Palestine. What you said was something along the lines of 'the Jews have traded on the Euope's guilt for too long'. It's a huge generalisation - do you really not think so? Are you really of the opinion that every single Jewish person on the planet is trading off of European guilt? Because if not, I think you should just be a little more careful in how you phrase what you are saying. Or, if you really do believe that, I would suggest that you review your statement that 'It is only racist in intent if it is not true', because I'd think that it applies in this case.

C. A. Small says:
You may note the difference between the jews, and all jews. I have never seen a debate where when challenged on an aspect of their daft faith the jewish representative does not either immediately or eventually swing round the debate to a variation of "if you are anti-jewish, you support the nazis/holocaust".

I am totally anti both Nazis and the holocaust, and totally anti the jewish religion, plus all other religions.

Spin says:
CA: You are a "Racialist"; you intentionally differentiate between cultures and races in order to express a stereotype. This does not, of course, mean you are a "racist" but given your comments on these threads I do not think it would take too much to convert you that ideology. Anger and hatred tend to be focussed on the negative, never the positive.
