I wish all Muslims were this moderate. Well, I wish all religious people were this moderate.
This thought really stood out to me:
“I don’t really think about faith is terms of evidence, in fact, faith by definition is belief absent proof. It’s tough to explain why I have faith, it’s just a sort of feeling I get—that I know God’s up there and that there was a reason I was born into this faith.”
If people feel this way, and their faith makes them happy, more power to them… so long as they don’t force it onto others. Many religions have been guilty of that, including Muslims and Christians.
