    Glad it helped! Yep, almost all of them are from Pakistan and India, with the majority being from Pakistan.

    The unity sounds wonderful, even if it is in unfortunate circumstances.

    Best of luck with your recovery. :)

    That's awesome about the girl. Not so much about the imam who speaks of the "deviance" of LGBT people.

    Did the Shi'a girl immigrate to the U.S. alone or with her family? That is, do you know if they have any problem with her liberal views or if they're liberal like her?

    Thanks. I'll do well as long as I put sobriety first. And I do.
    The unity is awesome as we all are in recovery from a deadly condition.
    We have members representing all religions, the sexes, those not religious,
    ethnicity nor race nor sexual preference means anything.
    If the people of the world followed the 12 steps of recovery the world would
    be a much better place.

    Are you trying to say that Islam makes one have cute kids? Is that what you're trying to say?

    What a nefarious Islamic apologist.

    Advocate of letting go of theism. Buddhist with an emphasis on personal understanding.
    Those are fairly similar to the corresponding beliefs in many of the most active Christians here in Brazil. In that sense Islam is not too much of a deviation from the Brazilian mainstream.

    So I would say about 90% or even more.

    I fear you are not likely to have much of a positive surprise there. I want to be proven wrong, though.

    That is pretty sad. It doesn't surprise me given my experiences with the majority of Muslims and Christians I've met, though.

    Yeah, I would like you to be proved wrong in this case too, although I'm admittedly not expecting you to be.

    Most of the Muslims I have met and known have behaved like people. Strange, but true.;)

    I'm not asking whether or not they "acted like people"; the vast majority of Muslims I've met "act like people" too. I'm asking what their beliefs are like—that is, whether their beliefs are as strict and sometimes hateful as most of the ones I have met where I live.

    Really helpful answers in this thread. Thanks, all. I was quite upset when I made this thread, and I'm still pretty disgusted at many of the comments I read. The answers in this thread have helped a lot, though.

    O.K. at the risk of a truthful post with citation hurting sensitive ones I deleted the original post but that evidently won't delete the copy and pasted original post.
    Never thought the truth of a copied and pasted bit of information would cause
    upset feelings but for the tender among us I deleted the original.
    If the mods like they can delete the whole stinking thread for all I care.
    I simply cannot make the Florida massacre not happen by the people that did

    it for the reasons they did it.
