For one thing, muslin is a fabric.

Muslims are people who follow the religion of Islam, they are not a race.

Muslims are semites, arabs, caucasians, and any other race out there.

I would say that you might find many here that are against Islam, but go to an Islamic sight. Not only will you find many there against Catholicism (or what they think Catholicism is) but you will find much hatred directed towards those of the West.

I don’t think that the fact some muslims hate Catholicism is an excuse for any Catholics to hate Islam, though.

There’s a fishing term for this type of thread…

I’ve also just noticed that Nenat appears to have been banned for asking what seemed to be a perfectly innocuos question.

Innocuous, as in “When did you stop beating your wife” innocuous?

Yeah, that’s *pefectly * innocuous.

Sorry, it just didn’t really look to me like an insult.

EDIT - Although now I have re-read the original post, I take my comment back, if I may. I didn’t notice the phrasing of the second sentence.

Nenat13 was banned because he is a repeat offender operating under several previously banned user-names.
