Yet more ableist BS from the camp who (ignoring the fact that the whole vaccines cause autism is absolute nonsense) think it is preferable for children to die of preventable diseases than get on the spectrum.
Oh ffs. Would he like to meet the parents of children who died from a perfectly preventable disease?

Only in the way that some on here define "left" - as anything "not us".

Yes, there is that. Bad Muslim hombres among those children, I'm sure.

Someone should probably tell him that the Islamic world was the cradle of scientific advancement in the middle ages - it'd make his head explode in a most funny way.

Why are the parents taking their perfectly healthy child to a doctor anyway?

Meanwhile in the real world, people from differing religions just get along:

In the pews of St Alban’s in North Harrow there will be a special group of visitors: about three dozen Muslims from a nearby mosque.

For the past 10 years, worshippers at the Shia Ithna’ashari Community of Middlesex have been attending midnight mass at St Alban’s as a way of meeting their neighbours and taking part in Christmas festivities.

“For us, attending midnight mass is a great chance to participate in an important part of Christmas celebrations and meet people from our local church, many of whom have become our friends,” said Miqdaad Versi, an executive committee member of SICM.

I might have posted this in the wrong thread - but hey, it's relevant anyway (the Christmas Eve wine's going down well)

I'll admit I only know a handful of Muslims personally but I've always understood that they are incredibly welcoming people, so this is of course no surprise to me.

The local government area I worked in had a huge mosque, so lots of residents who were Muslim. I loved working with them, they were so community minded (and I mean the wider community) and were lovely neighbours and friends.

Brilliant Muslims where we are.

One lot run a restaurant where they very apologetically refuse to serve alcohol - which is fine, you just take your own - much cheaper - it's the most popular Indian restaurant in town.

Another, which is a takeaway, spends the whole of Ramandan feeding curries to the rough sleepers of the town - most of which are permanently pissed.

Very community spirited people.

People all living together, mixed up in the same geographic areas, and getting along splendidly? Well really, don't they know they are supposed to be running no-go areas?

Many of the neighbours in our little cul-de-sac are Polish. I'm dreading them going - they're great.

We have a large Polish community here in the Chicago area. There's a little Polish-run bakery in our town and they do the best donuts I've had anywhere round here. Also, their pączki that they sell on Fat Tuesday are the absolute best.
