You what?

The problem as I see it for the Equality and Human Rights Commission is that they have to find racists or discriminators under every stone or they'd be out of a job. Sometimes however they pick on the wrong target and get a wtf reaction.

Muslims are integrating into British society better than many Christians, according to the head of the Government's equality watchdog. 
Trevor Phillips warned that "an old time religion incompatible with modern society" is driving the revival in the Anglican and Catholic Churches and clashing with mainstream views, especially on homosexuality.
He accused Christians, particularly evangelicals, of being more militant than Muslims in complaining about discrimination, arguing that many of the claims are motivated by a desire for greater political influence.
However the chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission expressed concern that people of faith are "under siege" from atheists whom he accused of attempting to "drive religion underground".
In an interview with the Sunday Telegraph ahead of a landmark report on religious discrimination in Britain, he said the Commission wants to protect Christians and Muslims from discrimination, admitting his body had not been seen to stand up for the people discriminated against because of their faith in the past.
While the equalities boss promised to fight for the rights of Christians, he expressed concern that many cases were driven by fundamentalist Christians who are holding increasing sway over the mainstream churches because of the influence of African and Caribbean immigrants with "intolerant" views.

In contrast, Muslims are less vociferous because they are trying to integrate into British "liberal democracy", he said.
Trying to integrate seems to mean it's ok to blow up tubes and buses, drive cars with gas canisters wrapped in explosives and nails into airport entrances, try to set of nail bombs in cafe's, go over to Sweden to set off bombs, travel to Israel to blow up a bar in Tel Aviv, plot to kill thousands by blowing up trans-Atlantic airliners with liquid explosives hidden in soda bottles, as consulate staff supply weapons to Hamas in Jerusalem, try to blow up a plane with a shoe bomb, run paedophile grooming gangs, beat up religious teachers, demand gay free zones, abuse returning troops...

Some integrating Muslims

Don't see radical Christians trying those sort of things in the UK do you? Might get more respect if they did.though.
Trevor Phillips and his Equality and Human Rights Commission are clearly taking the mickey if they think that radical Christianity is a problem, radical Islam now clearly has issues with, well with just about everyone who isn't a radical Islamist. Again we have a government quango trying to persuade us that one side is as bad as the other (equality in action?) when it is self evident that this is clearly not the case! They are so frightened to appear to demonise a minority that they target a law abiding majority. Yes Christians take employers to court for discrimination, what they don't do is threaten to kill them for perceived discrimination, that's the difference between radical Christians in the UK and radical islamists and the percentage of radical Islamists is far higher than radical Christians. Almost a third of British Muslim students believe killing in the name of Islam can be justified, according to a you gov poll.Doubt you'd find that attitude amongst Christians, which say it all really.

W-e-e-e-l-l-l, we have to have a bit of light relief, something to laugh at once in a while.
