Regular readers of Balladeer’s Blog will remember the heroic Irshad Manji, a Muslim woman who is openly lesbian and has been working with other Muslims to initiate reform in Islam. Irshad’s book, The Trouble With Islam Today, was discussed in a previous post here in which I also lauded her courage in dealing with the threats of physical violence which she and her fellow reformers face on a regular basis.
Manji also heads the Moral Courage Project at New York University. That project works to combat politically correct censorship and to promote intellectual diversity, sort of like my “Liberals and Conservatives and … ” posts. Hopefully more and more people will help make left- wing zealots and right- wing zealots realize their polarizing worldview is outdated and needs to evolve.
Long ago I cyber- signed the Moral Courage Project’s Statement of Secular Values and you can, too, to let your voice be heard in the global struggle with the oppressive, misogynist, homophobic forces of Muslim fanatics. Click here to add your cyber- signature: https://www.irshadmanji.com/petition
