What Is Racism?

Firoozeh Bazzrafkan is a Danish-Iranian woman who is an artist. She enjoys writing on her blog about life and the world of those who are of the Muslim faith. She recently wrote that she “was ery convinced that Muslim men around the world rape, abuse and kill their daughters.” She went on to add her views about the Muslim religion which she considers to be a “defective and inhumane religion whose textbook,the Koran, is more immoal and deplorable abd crazy than manuals of the two other manuals of the two other global religions.” The City Court of Aarhus found her comments to be insulting and an example of racism.

The history of Christianity is replete with violence against women and war and death–in the name of Christ. Ditto for other religions. During the past few months–not in the Middle Ages–Buddhists have gone on rampages in Burma against Muslims. There are examples of death and rape.

Abuse of women occurs in all religions.
