Islam and religion mentions Show more
There are LGBT Muslims out there like me who're religious normal folk but deal with ridiculous amounts of prejudice.
When anti-theists say "I don't hate Muslims, I hate Islam", that statement hurts us still. Faith and spirituality has helped plenty of minorities in the MENA region survive our horrible oppression for centuries. It's not something to be disregarded and reduced to such flippant statement.
That's not criticism and simply comes from ignorance of the actual religion & it's history with context etc.
As anarchists we shouldn't fall into the trap of anti-theism. Yes, we should be critical of organised religions, but mostly importantly we need to help our religious comrades dismantling their insidious hierarchies and theocracies !
Islam & muslims are not a monolith ! We're not all salafists/fundamentalists.
Islam has nuances just like any religion.
