    I have criticised Catholics a couple of times. I can as I was raised in the faith.

    I post this from the staff room at B&Q where I just sat and chatted wish Tamid, lovely guy Muslim and Arsenal fan. Leaving in the summer to go to university. All the Muslims I have met have been nice. But I find it strange he is going to university as I thought you had to be clever to do that and anyone who believes in any sort of GHod is a bit thick.

    Also the Jewish guy on here from Floridia who sadly died I got into an argument with him about religion. Told him that I was cleverer then him because he believed in GHod. Did not feel like bringing it up when he was dying. Did not seem like the right time.

    Well this thread hasn’t developed into what I was hoping it would be:D

    I have never taken a real interest in religion so can’t contribute, but would like to say I hope comments that have offended some doesn’t drive them away from this forum. This forum offers so many benefits, way beyond simple Spurs chat and it would be a shame if a few didn’t want to visit anymore because of offence caused by a real minority of people…..

    Using anti semitic tropes really bothered Scara. But not Islamophobic ones about Sadiq. He's got double standards. And Marky the coward has disappeared.

    It is obviously not accepted.

    The discussion we're currently having in the private forum is which side of that line we think the comment falls.

    The answer is more complex there.

    Anti-semitism (in it's current form) is rarely aimed at the Jewish religion and more at those either from Israel or with a Jewish heritage. It's too broad a word in that sense and the two should meanings should really be split out.

    Their religion is just as ridiculous as anyone else's and is equally open to (deserved) ridicule.

    Of those three I only know who Sam Harris is.

    Whilst I often agree with him, I don't nearly have enough time to listen to podcasts of that length.

    So if a poster said of a Jewish mayor of London, apropos of nothing in particular, “lol he’s going to make them matzo’s made of kiddies blood compulsory” would that be religious or racial intolerance?

    That's what is being discussed in the mod forum and has unfortunately spilled out here.

    I'm not commenting on that side of things until it's been discussed fully.

    well let me help you out there my man.

    What has Sadiq khan done to suggest that he is going force all Londoners to wear Burkas

    Does he even openly flaunt his religion… like I know he is Muslim but I’m not sure that he practices, without looking it up do you know?

    Has he introduced any parts of sharia law?? I mean I know Ulez is quite bad, not sure it’s part of Sharia law though.

    So bearing in mind Khan doesn’t let his religion mix with his politics - what justification does someone have for suggesting he is going to introduce burkas apart from the fact that he is a brown Muslim?

    It unfortunately spilled out here only because you restored the sodding thread with an inflammatory comment after everything had calmed down!

    Who moderates those who moderate?

    Are you discussing via carrier pigeon?

    I didn't know he was Muslim at all until the fall out from this thread caused me to Google it. Turns out I could have a lower opinion of Khan after all.

    You're right, he doesn't flaunt (or even mention, to my knowledge, his religion). That doesn't make the comment racist per se, just pointless.

    If the mayor were Catholic and Marky had suggested he wanted everyone to stop using contraception, would that have been racist or just pointless?

    The very recent approach has been hugely disappointing but not surprising.

    I don’t think it is exaggeration or libel to say @scaramanga (who still owes me a response on another issue I may add but appreciate he is busier than I) will have enjoyed kicking a calm bees nest, whilst declaring we shouldn’t discuss it further and the thread should just go back to creepy leering sad old men who seemingly think they have the right to make women uncomfortable.

    You don't get it. Your last 'example' screams that loudly.

    Please explain the difference, they seem pretty much the same to me.

    Read the official definition I posted for you. Please. It's a govt document. It has some credibility too. It doesn't go far enough IMO but it does go far enough to prove your position to be wrong.

    It's so incredibly simple. With your example, there is an extremely high chance an individual making such a remark has an issue with catholicism/religion in general.

    With the comment Marky made (someone who has previous for being a bit of a racist, prejudiced dimwit), there is an extremely high chance the Islam part is just a topping for the insinuated racism behind it. This has been cross-referenced and verified over generations by racist dimwits using a symbol such as a burka to validate their dislike of anyone brown.

    @LutonSpurs has explained this quite clearly in this thread and in other threads. I have also experienced 'Islamophobia' despite not being religious, simply because of my skin colour and because racists in general are too stupid or too lazy (or both) to research what 'type of brown' I am when hurling abuse and hate-speech. I appreciate this is not your experience but to fob him off as having 'grumpy pants on' when he has witnessed hate and violence simply because of the colour of his skin is pretty low, even for you.
