It's an interesting and illuminating look at life among Muslims in America. One sentence that stood out:
Unlike so many of my peers, and my friends, who have likewise “defected” from the faith, I refuse to call out this religion as inherently “damaging.”
Isn't it ironic that only in a non-sharia society can he even write about being a homosexual and a wishy-washy apostate without the, er, non-damaging police storming his residence and throwing him behind bars; a few days later he'll get one of four punishments: 1) Hanging, 2) Beheading, 3) Flying from a rooftop, 4) Crushed under a heavy wall.
But, please, remember that Islam is not inherently "damaging".
