ThreadFreedom of speech debate heats up in France after death threats to 16-year-old girl who called Islam "religion of hate"
Religion is often described with different terms. It's not uncommon for Muslims to describe Islam as a "way of life", for example. Others may call it a creed, or their faith etc. I'm sure some people exclusively use this term for Islam to justify their Islamophobia, though. And yeah, “judeo-Christian values” is another example of a dogwhistle that's meant to simply exclude Islam, and is not actually a thing.
To summarise, I just want to say that it's obvious that we're in agreement overall, I was just perplexed by some posts in this thread seemingly elevating Islam beyond a religion and not simply calling out the dogwhistle.
