Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?

It really depends on what you mean by 'respect'and 'insulting'.

In some Muslim countries, members of other religions are not allowed to worship openly, or speak about their beliefs.
Members of other religions are often subject to discrimination eg in personal safety, rights in law, and employment.
Muslims who take an interest in other religions or actually wish to convert risk death.
Such things do not seem to me to constitute respect.

You may not consider such things to be insulting other religions, and you are entitled to your opinion and free to express it, just as I am free to disagree with you.
Thank you.
