You wot Japan?

1.True, Islam is a minor religion in Japan but there are currently more than 100,000 muslim there. I wont call it a small number.

2.There is no way Japan government involved in this campaign, this is from Muslim community, I dont see why this is a waste when it is build only for them.

They are raising funds to build the mosque themselves. They are not using the government's money, in fact they will probably be the one paying the authorities for planning permission, land taxes, etc.

Hey, guys. This is an anime site. Please refrain from attacking religions. (And this warning is coming from an atheist.)

Laughing I lurk on this site for anime news but this thread caught my attention.

1. I've seen christian bashing and intolerance against christian religion on this website, why some of you mods aren't so sensitive regarding that topic, is the islam religion some kind of sacred cow?

2. Islam is NOT a race so why bring political bullshit over this site calling racist or xenophobic to who oppose in his/her/my view to that religion?

3. I'm 99.8% sure if this was a campaign to raise money for building a church in Japan and people were bashing christians you wouldn't be this severe,

4. I don't know what Akira SS (I suppose SS standing for nazism so maybe a racist/xenophobic thing) or whatever said but this is an interesting topic regarding the ol' hypocrisy and PC than sadly runs wild even on AnimeNewsNetwork.

If you see Christian-bashing on this site, report it. Akira SS's comment was highly inflammatory.

You can always count on the liberal ANN moderators to disdain such retrograde concepts like "free speech" in favor of supporting religious ideologies known for their excellent human rights records.

There is no free speech here. If you thought there was, then you are extremely ignorant. By posting on this message board you relinquish your words to be moderated. If that isn't your cup of tea, then I'm sure /pol/ would love to have ya.

I've banned Akira SS for hate speech. If anyone says anything as inflammatory as what he said about any religion, including Christianity, they will be banned as well.

There will be no 3-strike opportunity, no moderated posts, no temp ban. Permanent and immediate.

F*ck being politically correct. This has nothing to do with it. Disagreeing with religious views, or criticism of the beliefs and actions of individuals is one thing, and we will allow it as long as it is on topic and expressed in a polite manner. Hate speech on the other hand will not be permitted. Akira SS's posts were way, way over that line. It was out-right racism.

Additionally his account was created today, right before making those posts. I assume he created the account expressly to make those posts. On top of being a bigot, he was a troll.
