I am done with this blog

I will no longer be posting on here anymore. I believe I've proven my point. The truth is the stories of pastors and priests and just in general, Christians, will continue to be told. Ever since my last post on here, there's been probably about a hundred more stories of rape, kidnap, abuse, and murder. It'll just continue in the future. I no longer need to post on here to prove to everyone what happens in the name of Christianity.

I also will no longer be posting on the Christian Women Watch blog either. Its too much of a hassle transferring all the articles from here to over there.

I will however be posting on another blog (http://www.mymuslimthoughts.blogspot.com). Truth is I'm sick and tired of scholars and cultures interpreting our scriptures. I'm sick and tired of the haraam police, the takfeeris, and others justifying Islam according to their emotions and desires. I've been struggling my Islam for a while now, and the only way I can re-connect my heart with this deen is if I begin interpreting on my own. Now I'm not one of those people who have no idea what Islam says and will interpret however I feel like. I know Islam well enough. I have studied this religion inside and out since I was 15 (I'm 23 now). I know Islam well enough to realize our cultures and societies see the religion differently. This is a sad fact we all have to admit. I grew up in a gender equal society where people of all religions and cultures are equal. I grew up in a place that does not look down upon women for the choices they make. So it makes no sense to me to follow scholars and muslims who come from entirely contradictory backgrounds who see Islam in a way that makes me want to vomit and consider apostasy. This includes the islamic sites I have linked to on the side bar.

There will be more of this on the other blog. I may not be posting immediately, as I've got school and work, but you know what I'll be discussing on there.

Thanks to all the people who debated me and supported me all these years. That includes my Christian friends.
