"Man-on-the-street conversations about islam" in Canada:
Thinking I'd have time later to explore the theology behind a potentially ecumenical muslim, I get back to the other question that haunts me about our current war against islam.
"Are there many others like you, within islam, that are ashamed of the evil being done in the name of your faith? Is there a group, a formal organization, trying to reclaim the true islam from the fanatics that are speaking and acting in its name?"
Can you guess the answer?
I understand the fear. I haven't used my real name here for the simple reason that were I to be deported, my end would be certain.
I could taste the fear when I went back to Saudi Arabia in 2002 and 2003. No-one knew that I was an apostate at the time, still I couldn't help but feel awfully sick. It really made me appreciate the dignity in freedom.
Sadly, that freedom is being suffocated in the West in the name of multiculturalism and political correctness. (Thou shall not speak ill of Islam.)
