Today it is frequently assumed — by sections of the political class, by the educational establishment, by the commentariat — that anyone who feels uncomfortable with Islam and its beliefs and practices must be driven by a racial animus towards Muslims more broadly.

A Spectator article on how the OCR board disqualified a GCSE student for criticising halal meat, that she had made ‘obscene racial comments’ about Islam.

As I am quite refined, I would prefer "defecatery" and micturatery".
