Celebrating moderate Islam

From Protestants to Pastafarians, from Mormons to Muslims, spirituality is as old as man, and so is discussing religion.

Celebrating moderate Islam

Postby Big Vern » Sun Jun 25, 2017 20:45

As those few bad apples ISIS appear to have been pretty much defeated, I thought this would be a good time to celebrate moderate Islam - of which the vast majority of the 1.6 billion followers belong.

This is a wonderful example of Islamic moderates adopting radical ideas such as men and women being allowed to pray together, or women not being coerced into covering their faces and bodies. Sadly, the seven strong congregation is now almost matched by security staff on account of threats from the states of Egypt and Turkey.

:bravo: to these seven believers in Islam for their bravery. Moderate Islam is alive and strong! :bravo:
