To answer the OP: this forum has always had its share of knuckledragging little Englanders, nothing's changed.
"To use the word 'racism' is totally wrong in that area because Christians, Jews and Muslims are all the same race, just different tribes."
This is complete nonsense, and if you thought about it for half a second you'd see why. You can be from any racial group and choose to follow any of those religions. Aretha Franklin (famous Christian) and Yusuf Islam (ex Cat Stevens, famous Muslim) are not the same race!
If your statement is that race is a pernicious, slippery and unscientific thing, I agree, but if it means anything, it doesn't mean what you say it means.
