Judaism are fair game.
Why don't you give us the full story instead of half of it.

Its impossible to be MORE equal. And the only reason you perceive this era to give "special reverence" to Islam is because people are trying to counter the effects of the demonization of Islam as a whole because of the actions of a small fraction of its followers.
I think its telling when people perceive attempts to counter intolerance of any kind as giving special treatment to a group of people.
Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ is desecrated, churches are destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied
