Those who are non-practicing Muslims frequently get featured in the Western media. Christian sites love noting facts like how these so called people are "Muslim". It's all about teasing us.
Noureen Dewulf is a model and actress, and engaged to Ryan Miller, the starting goaltender for the Buffalo Sabers. Dewulf was born and raised in New York and featured in films like West Bank Storey, a movie about an Israeli soldier who falls on love with a Palistinian women (interesting to know, many Jewish groups critisized the movie, saying Jews do not marry/date Arabs).
So anyways she's often tagged as a follower of Islam. She's said she was brought up in a strict household. Funny, a "strict" Muslim household means you know what the Quran and Hadith say. Apparently her clothing didn't think so, and neither do her actions.
So here's a quote from her, and I actually got some relief:
"I’m hugely spiritual, but I hesitate to claim religion. In every faith there are fanatics and liberals. Same in Islam. Unfortunately, extreme radicals have attacked the US. I’m 100 percent American – I get teary at the National Anthem. There’s no way to justify anything bad that happens to our country. But I did grow up in a strict Muslim household. I wasn’t allowed to talk to boys on the phone, and couldn’t watch The Cosby Show ‘cos they were dating in it." -Maxim.com
You know, not being able to talk to boys has NOTHING TO DO WITH RELIGION. Last time I checked, most fathers and brothers in the West are quite hesitant about who their daughters and sisters talk to and go out with. It's in a man's nature to be protective of women they care about.
Dunno what the Cosby show is, but don't most kids shows have dating in it?
Another question I have, if the family was sooo strict, why the hell do they not give a (expletive word) about her bikini shoots or her engagement to a non-Muslim?
Furthermore I've a hard time believing her family was strict if they didn't let her watch a show, but are fine with her clothing?
