One of the worst genocides in modern history (the ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya) is being carried out by Buddhists in the name of Buddhism.

The idea that Islam is unique in its violence (btw, lovely shifting goalposts) is patently wrong, much like nearly everything else that comes out of Pr's mouth.

Not all buddists are non-violent.  Check this https://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-32929855

When pressed, all theism revert to violence.

We are all pressed ... so get over it already.  If you were short on food, atheist though you may be, you will kill and eat your neighbors like any good New Guinea savage.  You are smart though, so head hunting is unnecessary for you ;-)

Thank you.  I missed mentioning that small "peacefullness" of Buddists.  Quite right to keep us in the present of viciousness.  I apologize for not mentioning it myself...

I also want to mention something I missed at the top of the thread.  There was a post about how hand-clapping was bannined at Manchester.

As usual, such silly claims are usually wrong.

Snopes.com checked it out.  In actuallity, it involved some switching out of hand clapping for British Sign Language signals meaning the same thing.  I don't know all the details but you can find some information here.  https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/university-clapping-ban/

If you actually want to know more...

How about clapping with one hand only? Would that be less offensive?

How about admitting you had no idea what you were talking about and shared a sensationalist load of b.s.? Would that be too offensive?

University of Manchester Students' Union bans clapping
Quote
Reps at the University of Manchester voted to replace noisy appreciation with the British Sign Language (BSL) equivalent - a wave of both hands.

Union officer Sara Khan said traditional clapping can cause issues for students with autism, sensory issues or deafness.

But the move was criticised by some who accused students of being "pampered".

Under the new measures, BSL clapping will be used at student events such as debates, panels and talks.

Student groups and societies will also be encouraged to move away from audible clapping.

'Respectful environment'
Ms Khan, the union's liberation and access officer, who proposed the motion at a recent meeting said clapping can "discourage" some from attending democratic events.

So-called "jazz hands", she said, encouraged an "environment of respect".

"I think a lot of the time, even in Parliamentary debates, I've seen that clapping, whooping, talking over each other, loud noises, encourages an atmosphere that is not as respectful as it could be," she said.

PC incorrect for people who have one hand/arm missing.  The Horror!

If GB had more ambulance chasing lawyers, like the one representing that prostitute who violated her agreement with Trump, you could make a mint, over all the civil claims.  Don't Muslims in Europe know, you always show up at court in a fake neck brace?

Article from 2nd of October. The clarification that it wasn't a ban on clapping but a suggestion posted on the 4th of October.

Yes, the BBC can get shit wrong and post sensationalist headlines that aren't accurate. Shocking, I know. Hence the reason you fact check even sources you agree with.

Of course, I know how foreign of concept that must be for you.
