You make some very valid points throughout this article, thank you for sharing your thoughts.

I can not say for certain, as I am neither Muslim nor from an Islamic region of the world, however, I believe that the reason people may be called “racist” for questioning Islam is likely because the majority of the people who are Muslim are not Caucasian.

My point in that is, with Christianity, there are a melting pot of people in that belief system, whereas with Islam, it’s more “one race” of people worshiping. I am aware that there are all types of people who can convert to Islam, but the vast majority are “brown”. I don’t say any of this in a derogatory manner by any means.

Now, with that said, and hopefully conveyed in the manner I meant, that doesn’t mean anyone should be called racist for calling for change in this situation. Personally, I don’t find it to be racist at all. Times have changed, and I agree wholeheartedly that if it is okay to speak out against Christians for their treatment of the LGBT community and women, then there should be no reason for it to be different for any other group of people doing the same.

I think, therefore, I write. /Posts may contain affiliate links.
