New strategy: Yes, Islam is a race. But atheism is also a race. And if you make disparaging remarks about atheism you're a racist.

Sorry Ginny, am I missing something here? Religions are not inheritable characteristics and have nothing to do with racial traits. Would we call the Tories or the Liberals, races?

Exactly V.I., it's a brilliant case of what comic Mark Thomas calls 'out-weirding'. Here's a link. PB is making just that point that if you're going to call criticism of Islam a racism issue, then by that 'logic' any criticism of atheism must also be one, and therefore we're entitled to protectionism etc etc.

I think David Gilmour made a far more important and impressive contribution to Pink Floyd than either Roger Waters or Syd Barrett, and if you should contradict me, well then, I guess I'll have to play the racist card.
