How Irrational Is ‘Islamophobia’?

A few headlines today at the Drudge Report: MUSLIMS TO OUTNUMBER CHRISTIANS ‘IN 50 YEARS’ REBELS CAPTURE PRESIDENTIAL PALACE IN YEMEN… Al-Qaida storms jail, frees 300 inmates… This morning, I quoted a young Canadian feminist blogger who denounced “Islamophobia” as racial prejudice and “baseless hatred” that causes “the suffering of countless victims.” Meanwhile, there is this breaking news: […]

Rick Santorum on Tolerance

An Honest Headline
