I don’t dislike Christians, I dislike Christianity.
I don’t dislike Muslims, I dislike Islam.
I don’t dislike Jews, I dislike Judaism.
Just because I don’t like the religion does not mean I don’t like the people that follow it. There is much more to a person than their religion and it is no excuse to treat someone differently because of it.
