Islamophobia: otiose word that doesn’t deserve definition. Hatred of Muslims is unequivocally reprehensible. Hatred of Islam on the other hand is easily justified, as is hatred of any obnoxious ideology. Muslims themselves are the main victims of Islam

The same could be said for all religions.

It certainly could. Although I think Richard's point is that, if you're critical or fearful of other religions, you don't tend to get called "Christianophobic" or "Hinduphobic".

That's not what is. It's not fear. It's hate.

Well, that may or may not be the case, but regardless, I think my point still stands.

Religion: Delusional disorder, is a type of serious mental illness — called a “psychosis”— in which a person cannot tell what is real from what is imagined. The main feature of this disorder is the presence of delusions, which are unshakeable beliefs in something untrue.

You can criticise any religion you want in the world, except for Pastafarianism. That's Pastophobic.

Look here. I am gluten intolerant, and yet I recognize the superiority of the Flying Spaghetti Monster above all other deities! I feel like my inability to consume his earthly likeness is an homage to his greatness.
