Does not believing in God, heaven or hell make you an Islamophobe?

Probably according to Islamophobia Watch who’d spin this as “yet more evidence that more people hate Islam”.

Rise in militant atheism related to fear of Islam, NSS admits

More than three out of four people in the world consider themselves religious, and those with no faith are a distinct minority. But especially in richer nations, and nowhere more than in Europe, growing numbers of people are actively saying they don’t believe there is a heaven or a hell or anything other than this life.

Many analysts trace the rise of what some are calling the “nonreligious movement” to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The sight of religious fanatics killing 3,000 people caused many to begin questioning – and rejecting – all religion.

“This is overwhelmingly the topic of the moment,” said Terry Sanderson, president of the National Secular Society of Britain. “Religion in this country was very quiet until September 11, and now it is at the center of everything.”

Since the 2001 attacks, a string of religiously inspired bomb and murder plots has shaken Europe. Muslim radicals killed 52 people on the London public transit system in 2005 and 191 on Madrid trains in 2004. People apparently aiming for a reward in heaven were arrested in Britain last year for trying to blow up transatlantic jetliners. And earlier this month in Germany, authorities arrested converts to Islam on charges that they planned to blow up American facilities there.

Many Europeans are angry at demands to use taxpayer money to accommodate Islam, Europe’s fastest-growing religion, which now has as many as 20 million followers on the continent. Along with calls for prayer rooms in police stations, foot baths in public places and funding for Islamic schools and mosques, expensive legal battles have broken out over the niqab, the Muslim veil that covers all but the eyes, which some devout women seek to wear in classrooms and court.

So basically more people are atheist because of a “fear” of Islam? In other words more people are atheist because of “Islamophobia”.

We don’t believe in God, heaven, hell or an afterlife so we must be stinking Muslim racist BNP lovers then. Lol!

Presuambly Islamophobia Watch would advocate everybody being forced to belief in some religion in order to stop them being “racist”.

IW doesn’t like atheism or athiests much and believe that those who don’t believe in religion are “Islamophobes”.
