Out Of Islam By A Religious Seeker

The following is an intense and quite long read of the journey through the spiny vines of religious yearning from someone who calls himself Abdul-Quddus. This may be a true story, or not, but it is definitely well-crafted, hits all the right notes, and is re-published here because good information has a way of disappearing off the Internet: AM OFTEN ASKED, despite knowing the pros and cons of Islam, why would a Westerner embrace a religion they hated? Though surrounded by believers, while growing up as a child, I was essentially an agnostic. I pondered that, if this Creator actually...

Stephen Crittenden: Welcome to The Religion Report. The plight of Christian minorities in the Islamic Middle East is one of the 20th century tragedies to which we pay least attention.

Make No Mistake, Morristown

USLIMS, DESPITE AWKWARD claims to the contrary, do NOT worship the Judeo-Christian God, Yahweh. That is why Islam bears FEW similarities to Judaism and Christianity, and those few are summarily cloaked into their converse when applied to outsiders by Muslims. And why they burn down synagogues and churches whenever they get the chance... Al-lah's teachings (Islam) run counter to anything taught the Israelites by Yahweh (Judeo-Christianity). Al-lah is an idol (or deity, if you prefer) that originated in the religions of the Babylonian-Sumerian region of Mesopotamia over 4000 years ago and is also known under such names as Baal, Marduk,...
