Fantasy Islam is an imaginative construct of Dr. Steve Kirby, and he is no stranger to me. I was there in the same boat 15 years ago.
I don’t claim to be a scholar, nor do I claim to be an authority on Islam, but I do claim that I have investigated Islam thoroughly, invited criticism, discussed with many, and have found answers. I did not have to choose to be a Muslim, there was no need for me to be one, however, I decided to choose a religion for me and Islam suited me the best for two reasons – I knew and had re-learned a lot about it, and it is an inclusive and pluralistic faith.
I will be responding to the following article by Dr. Kirby, as I have responded before to many such misunderstandings at the site www.Quraantoday.com.
Meanwhile, review this video Pluralism in Islam. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7Tyt7raIXM
