I have a question for my muslim followers. I am genuinely curious and I am asking this question as an ex-Christian. I left an evangelical church when I was 16, though my parents made me attend services until I was 18. Anyways, (I could be wrong about this) but it seems like it is much more difficult to leave Islam than Christianity. I am reading about predominately muslim countries where your ID cards state your religion and you cannot change it (Malaysia ect.). Also, just from personal anecdotes and my experiences working in a predominately muslim work environment (I was “Christian girl” even when I tried to explain that I wasn’t Christian, it didn’t bother me I just found it odd.)

Is it just a country to country/ culture to culture thing? I’m genuinely curious.

Please only answer if you follow Islam or are an ex-muslim.

I am attracted to camab individuals and am a demisexual bigendered circumwoman(trans-transwoman). i have a transwomans brain and gender has nothing to do with your genitals.

The CETF’s(circumwoman exclusionary trans feminist) who have their own meetings, groups, and organizations need to stop…

Queer theory contains the seeds of its own destruction.

Florida city police department embedded with KKK members
July 21, 2014

Ann Hunnewell and her central Florida police officer husband knelt in the living room of a fellow officer’s home, with pillow cases as makeshift hoods over their heads. A few words were spoken and they, along with a half-dozen others, were initiated into the local chapter of the Ku Klux Klan, she says.

Last week, that initiation ceremony, which took place five years ago, stunned residents of the small town of Fruitland Park, who found out an investigative report linked two city officers with the secret hate society that once was violently active in the area. Ann Hunnewell’s ex-husband, George Hunnewell, was fired, and deputy chief David Borst resigned from the 13-member Fruitland Park Police Department. Borst has denied being a member.

James Elkins, a third officer who Ann Hunnewell says recruited her and her husband, resigned in 2010 after his Klan ties became public.

White American Brutally Assaults Korean Man in a Hate Crime


Shoreline, Washington, USA —
A Korean man, Jae Kang Lee, was beaten and dragged into busy Ballinger Way in Shoreline on October 26. Police said the only motivation for the attack appeared to be the victim’s race.
They arrested Dion Packard of Arlington and charged him with malicious harassment and assault. Eyewitnesses said the beating was unprovoked. Michael Alford was pumping gas when he noticed the attack at a bus stop just 30 feet away.
He said Packard slammed Lee’s head into the bus stop pole and then the man collapsed and Packard started kicking him. The eyewitness said, “It became very scary, very quickly. He said Packard grabbed his victim around the neck and pulled him into Ballinger Way.
Alford said, "It looked to me like he was going to actually throw him into the oncoming traffic." Alford ran out onto the street, waved his arms and said “stop, stop.” Two other bystanders joined him to stop the beating and that’s when the attacker started to protest. According to Alford, he said, "Why are you helping him? Don’t you know this man’s Japanese? Don’t you know what we did for them in Vietnam?"
