Oh Yeah, Ex-Muslims in Muslim Clothing

Not Hijab but I mean the title of "reformist" Muslim. Take Dr. Wafa Sultan and Irshad Menji, both ex-Muslims who now thanks to 9/11 and the right-wing extremist campaign of bashing Islam, got the greenlight to get famous by you guessed it, BASHING ISLAM IN THE NAME OF TRYING TO 'REFORM' IT. I will get back to them later.

Check this out, this is the funny thing. We know for centuries now Christianity went through a reformation of sorts, but this reformation was not influenced by religious Christians but by secular thinkers, non-believers in the Christian religion! In Europe and even in America, people were often killed, tortured, persecuted, even raped, in the name of Christianity. People were killed for just being accused of being witches for crying out loud, once again, in the name of Jesus and sanctioned by the church and the clerics in the Christian religion.

And the wars done in the name of Christianity, sanctioned by the Church and the clerics in the Christian religion like of course the most famous one, the Crusades. Mass murder and atrocities of all kinds were done in the name of Jesus, the god of the Christians, a different god that Jews and Muslims worship.

Now if we had cameras back then, today, many people will bash Christianity as they bash Islam. If we tally up the kills in the name of the respective religion, Christianity far leads the pack by a looooong shot. But we didn't have cameras back then and people tend to forget or not read up on history.

So now because we have cameras, Muslims have been doing some naughty things on tape so guess what, the ignorant ones bash Islam and Muslims when they forget they their own ancestors killed a lot more in the name of their religion not too long ago.

But Jesus should not be blamed for the crimes done in his name. Unlike the fellow Islamophobes, blaming a religion for the evil things done it is name is not what Muslims should do. On the other hand, exposing the history, practice and beliefs of the hypocrities who dare to bash Islam is what we should do in order to tell people the truth. You say "well, it happened back then not now" and let's say you're right, it STILL HAPPENED! Who cares if it happened back then, it was done, it was sanctioned, and it received its blessing from the highest levels of the clergy and guess what folks, the Bible was used a reference to justify the atrocities!

Now back the ex-Muslims in Muslim clothing. Now this is getting interesting: some Christians realize that their religion has been reformed by non-believing secular thinkers and they think why not use secular ex-Muslims to "reform" Islam?

There is a problem: Muslims don't believe that their religion is imperfect, but rather they believe Muslims are imperfect because come on folks, ignorance of Islam mixed with being human makes a perfect recipe for imperfection. And this alone contradicts everything the "reformers" of Islam and their supporters believe in. They think that Muslims will sooner or later accept heretics and non-Muslims as reformers of a religion that the followers believe is perfect. Let alone the fact Muslims see the reformers as puppets and agents of the Islamophobes.

Islam is from the Creator. It is a perfect system of life that covers all aspects of life. Roles are assigned to the men and women and this is a balanced system. No one complains when the animal world have roles assigned to the males and females of a particular species so why complain when humans are assigned it? Isn't it ironic that those who believe that humans are animals would ever complain about assign roles based on gender?

But the "reformers" do not believe in the above. They want Muslims to use secularism as a reference for all their affairs, not God. They want Halaal and Haraam to be determined by humans, not by God. They want a society where out of wedlock births, sex outside of marriage, eating disorders based on trying to be sexy, latch-key kids, extremely high divorce rate, disrespect of parents and elders, etc., etc., etc., are COMMON PLACE. Yes, the fruits of secularism: create chaos in the name of "progressive". I thought progress was supposed to alleviate problems not create more of them.

Finally, let me get to the ex-Muslims who are now touted as Muslims in remission aka "reformist Muslims". God has set the criterion His Book the Quran for what makes someone a Muslim or not. If you disbelieve in anything that was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (saaws), then according to God, you are not a Muslim. Now the Islamophobes want to create a class of "nominal Muslims" or Muslims in remission where they question, challenge, doubt, and even disbelieve in their religion while claiming to be Muslim. In other words, Muslim is not a believer in Islam but a person born to Muslim parents who for some reason still identify themselves as Muslim even if they don't believe in Islam as a whole.
