Who is the real anti-Muslim bigot here?
S F Ali and other Muslims can’t win!
If they are sober, they are superstitious and over-pious.
If they are humorous and use a little bit of self-irony, people like you shoot them down.
Carol Forden, you sound like someone who wants to shut down Muslims, just like Donald Trump or Nick Griffin do.
You’re just a bit more metropolitan about this.
Perhaps some Muslims will be tempted to say with Kant: “God save us from our ‘friends.’ We have enough trouble looking out for our enemies!” (Slightly misquoted, but you get the point! At least, you SHOULD do).
