    You're right that Maher is an equal opportunity idiot. That's not the point.

    Christians, Jews, Buddhists’ etc. are not engaged in a religious war where innocent civilians are the intended targets.

    The vast majority of Muslims are peaceful people. But it's foolish to ignore or deny that Islamic jihadis are engaged in a religious war.

    You need not think I am an islamophobe be sure of it.

    You are still avoiding the main point of my initial post. The double standard in the media.

    So because Maher hates all religion equally its ok, he is not an islamophobe. If I say what he said, which I have over the years on this forum I am an islamophobe. Lets try this a different way. Lets say insted of religion we use race. Lets say Mayer hates asians, blacks, hispanics, etc, etc. Does it make him less of a bigot because he hates all races. He still hates. Hate is ok if you spread it around, right?

    I wasn't defending Maher. I was merely stating that his hatred isn't focused on Islam. If that were the case, he would be an Islamophobe.

    I also agree that the vast majority of Muslims are peaceful and I didn't deny or ignore the fact that there are extremists within that religion.

    Well, then pointing out that it's Islamic jihadis, and not the followers of other religions, that are engaged in deliberately killing innocent people must make me an Islamophobe as well.

    It isn't a double standard. You are assuming that both you and Bill Maher are on equal playing ground. Bill Maher hates all religions. You seem to hate one religion. If you both hated all religions, you'd have a point.

    Lets try this a different way. Lets say insted of religion we use race. Lets say Mayer hates asians, blacks, hispanics, etc, etc. Does it make him less of a bigot because he hates all races. He still hates. Hate is ok if you spread it around, right?
    I'm not saying it makes him less of a bigot. That's not what the charge is. The term Islamophobe refers to one specific religion. If he hated that one specific religion I would call him an Islamophobe. Considering that Maher hates all religion and what they represent, his hatred of Islam doesn't really stand out that much from his hatred of other religions.

    Again, you are missing the point. Do yourself a favor and read through the thread before replying in the future.

    Then please point out where I referred to you as an Islamophobe or implied such.
