Irony is the enemy of the post-modern left(tm)
It seems many American Muslims are unhappy with the mostly Saudi-controlled mosques. (Hat tip: Kathy Kinsley)
Interesting article, and one that Muslim leadership needs to take a look at. I was especially struck by the young woman who said that form and presentation seemed to outweigh content and meaning for a lot of Muslims. This is true of any religion. When the only meaning it has is outward appearances, and “works”, there is a spiritual void, and it becomes essentially meaningless. For instance in many surveys, huge percentages of American ministers do not believe in the basic tenets of their religion. This leads to it being hijacked by extremist elements. And it makes it impossible for many people to experience their religion in a valid, coherent, and meaningful way.
Let’s not jump to conclusions. Who knows, maybe Islamic/American women want to get back to the basics of life again, the Seventh Century life that is. Afterall, who would have thought that black Americans would decide to resegregate themselves after seeing white Paree, but that is happening, on college campuses no less. In another ten years we will see National Guard troops in front of all-black schools forcing out students to attend all-white schools to get that all-important, everybody now!…DeeeVersaVighKayShun! Kumbaya.
