← Tory chief Baroness Warsi attacks 'bigotry' against Muslims

Stevehill's Avatar Jump to comment 1 by Stevehill

"Islamophobia has “passed the dinner-table test” and is seen by many as normal and uncontroversial, Baroness Warsi will say in a speech on Thursday."

Good. The penny has dropped.

We live in a free society, nobody's faith is immune from robust challenge.

A phobia is an irrational fear. I have a wholly rational fear about people who seem to want to kill me and run my country according to medieval theocratical laws.

Ergo, I am not Islamophobic. I am reasonable.
