Islam is a RACE?

It's a mystery wrapped up in an enigma when I read that Muslims are now considered a race. Expressing opinions about Islam in France is now considered racism.

Poor old Bridget Bardot has ended up in court for the nth time for the crime of having an opinion. Maybe retired sex symbols should just quietly fade away rather than use their fame to draw attention to issues of concern. I admire the courage of her convictions.

I suppose it won't be long before anybody criticizing the Pope will be accused of racism.

Just for the record, the origins of the idea that criticism of Islam is racism began with Edward Said.
