So I’m reading Your Fatwa Does Not Apply Here By Karima Bennoune.

Welcome to The Secular Brownie.
Why I Switched from ExMuslimRants
I began writing in my other site Ex-Muslim Rants as a way to openly critique daily Muslim life I would observe in my family and society. However, as I met more secular bloggers, ex-Muslims etc. my horizons on critiquing the role of religion in society expanded. I realized that a blog title called “ExMuslim Rants” would confine me to merely critiquing the Islamic lifestyle and faith. Through this new site, I seek to expand my options.
I have copied and pasted all the articles from the previous site to this site.
Goals of The Secular Brownie
In The Secular Brownie, we will examine:
- The effects of religion and dogma on society
- Mainstream politics and problematic popular misconceptions of contemporary events.
- Personal observations from my daily life regarding the effects of religiosity/faith.
- And more
I am very excited about some of the posts to come.
