People like Pagans or Witches get more respect on this site then Muslims? It makes no sense to me because Muslims believe in God and are God fearing/respecting people, but Pagans, Wiccans and Athiets do not believe...Can u explain this to me?

I didn't say that Muslims aren't sometimes "abused" on this site - just that they aren't more abused than other religions. I know which posts you are referring to, and I've been on CM long enough to know that they usually come in spurts. Sometimes it's Christians "attacking" Atheists, sometimes vice versa. One day last week there was no less than five questions that caused Jehovah's Witnesses to be "attacked", and I believe yesterday Mormon's were a topic. I would imagine it seems like Muslim's get more grief because it's a personal topic for you, just like I would imagine it is easier for you to overlook the crap that said about other religions....

To be completely honest I don't think it has anything to do with CafeMom... Pagans today are not seen as scary or threatening... Unfortunately many people think Muslim and the first thing to come to mind is the extremists. They are scared because all you hear on the TV is how terrible Muslims are and how they abuse and shelter their women. People today don't want to hear or see the truth of the religion. They group all in with the loud mouth and often heard from crazy guy. Today that crazy guy happens to be Muslim and in some recent cases Mormon... People here these words and automatically thing oppression, abuse, terror and so on... They don't look at the people themselves or even the religion... They base their opinions on negative news reports and stories... I can assure you that if the media would keep their mouths shut about the few bad apples things as a whole would change...
