As a response to this post, “takeitasyouwill” said in the following:
Quite the contrary - I’m a fairly religious Muslim girl working with about 15 other Muslim girls in my community. We’re constantly doing anything we can to help prevent discrimination and homophobia. We’ve had at least 5 “feed the homeless” events in the Bay Area in the past 6 months, and we’ve recently held small events that have raised more than $6000 for Japan. And we aren’t the only Muslim communities that have done so.
Here is my response:
I said: “Where are the moderate Muslim voices fighting for the rights of Christians, Jews, gays, atheists and other minorities in Saudi Arabia, Iran or Afghanistan, for example?”
What does feeding homeless people or sending money to Japan have to do with the previous, I have no idea.
1) Do you believe gays are deserving of death because of their sexual orientation?
2) Should Muslim apostates be put to death for leaving the Islamic faith?
If you answer NO to any of the questions then:
1) How can you call yourself a Muslim? Haven’t you studied how killing gays and apostates is the proper Islamic response to the above?
2) What are you doing about it? Haven’t you heard that in places like Saudi Arabia, the land of the “prophet”, humans are murdered for being gay or for leaving the islamic faith?
Like I said:
"Just look at the Islam and Quran tags in Tumblr. Post after post of Muslims complaining about Islamophobia in the US but not one single post complaining about how non-Muslims are treated all over the middle east."
Thanks for proving my point.
