Yes.

Try telling that to some Talbot.
Who?
Yes of course you can. Anything can be expressed or debated as long as appropriate language is used and the discussion is not designed to stir up hatred.
-- answer removed --
There is no doubt that for some, no matter what 'some' of the followers of Islam get up to they remain above criticism and indeed if you do criticise their actions you risk the old 'Islamaphobe' 'racist' accusations.

What are the various Christian faiths doing to increase their numbers in the UK?
Why not have a bash at answering the question, tcl

Early this morning a chap on the phone-in on LBC Radio happened to include Muslim families interbreeding and it's effect on the NHS, amongst his other concerns regarding the increase in the Muslim population of the UK,
He was immediately taken off the air by the presenter.
TALBOT, if there were more Christians in the country, would the perceived threat to this country's culture not be reduced?
Since I didn't hear that AOG I can't really comment, as that subject could be approached either perfectly reasonably or not, depending on the agenda of the person speaking.
//He was immediately taken off the air by the presenter.//

Zap! That's one way to stifle debate!

Obviously,not an avenue the presenter wanted to go down (or his programmers...)
//depending on the agenda of the person speaking.//

Sounds like the presenter didn't hang around to find out with his 'immediate' despatch...

WHY NOT HAVE A BASH AT ANSWERING THE QUESTION RATHER THAN BEING A COWARD ALL THE TIME?
you raise this question almost every day
and no one has censored you
At the moment we are still allowed generally to criticise Islam, although those who do, as you see on this site, are routinely accused by the stupid (or worse) of inciting hatred against Muslims.

There is, of course, wide-spread self-censorship in the media which protects Islam from ridicule and abuse, although if ever a so-called religion deserved both it's Islam.

As for the de facto position as compared with the de jure one, some aspects of Islamic law which ought to be unlawful in this country are tolerated quietly, or even openly approved, e.g. plolygamy, FGM and halal slaughter.

And, most disgracefully, our and every other country in the "free" world have ceded to Islamic blasphemy laws as in the shameful and cowardly refusal to publish the Danish cartoons and the later Charlie Hebdo ones.

With the more children you have the more risq(provision written for humans in this world)

The more kids you have you won’t be alone when you grow old.

To increase step by step the family, branch, subclans, clans and our Somali population in the world.

// Most importantly to increase the Population of the nation of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) for them to outnumber all other nations on the day of judgment. //

Spoken by a Somali Muslim ( not me). Says it all really. :-(
Yes, we should be allowed to voice our concerns.

//Anything can be expressed or debated as long as appropriate language is used and the discussion is not designed to stir up hatred.//

Statements like that indicate the imposition of censorship based upon the speaker's attitude and therefore provoke instant suspicion. To whom must the language be ‘appropriate” - and what constitutes hate?
Yes definitely. At a recent visit to my dentist we got talking about marriage and he said a friend of his was about to take a second wife because it was allowed under Sharia law. As I was laid on the couch ready for treatment I thought I'd best not comment but if it comes up again I will (after my treatment course)
^ I'd probably have taken a pass on the knockout gas while I was there as well.
