hopefully this thread will spark them to inquire more about the atmosphere surrounding Islam, and predominantly Muslim countries on ATS.
I'm glad you borught this up and in such a responsible and respectful way.
Not because I think it should be censored, but because it's good to
keep these things out in the open.
I would just like to point out that, on ATS, almost dialy, there are blanket insults thrown out. To Republicans, liberals, gay people, Christians, fat
people, politicians, priests, Chinese, Democrats, actors, Catholics, Iraqis and pro-lifers... And that's just in Politics!
I don't think it would be healthy to disallow insults against Islam when insults against Christianity are allowed, do you? That wouldn't be fair.
(I'm NOT a Christain, I have no religion). I'm just saying to censor one subject, they'd have to censor them all and then we'd have nothing left
to talk about!
Like it or not, bigotry exists. And the only way to address it is through education and discussion. It's not always pleasant, but denying it or
disallowing it here just means it will move somewhere else, not go away.
And it is a very small percentage of people who are judging all Muslims based on the actions of a few. Yes, people are upset. I am. I'm frustrated
and saddened and angry about what's going on in the world.
But I feel we NEED to talk about it. Not censor it. Just my thoughts.
those should be reported. I feel like a real squealer sometimes, using that gripe button, but I have a vested interest in this board
keeping a certain level of decorum and decency. It's the only place like this I've found.
, send the specific gripes to the staff. It's a fine line that they have to draw and I trust them to do a great job. Not perfect, but
In my opinion the quote in your first post is just an expression of frustration, not something that's likely to happen. But report
it if you think it goes against TAC.
