Support The Secular Brownie!

Thank you all for having supported my videos and articles these past several months.  I have gone through a lot of intellectual growth and maturity interacting with you all and engaging with different people and their ideas in these online communities.

I have decided I want to improve my quality of presentation such as web design, sound/video quality on Youtube; as well as attend educational events to improve my learning and network with other great thinkers to interview on my channel.  Doing so is no cheap task.  I have opened a Patreon account where readers/viewers who are interested in seeing improved quality can help through generosity.  Below is a video introducing my Patreon account.  If you want to learn more, click here.

I was 2-5 years old. Click to continue reading!

Family Observations: The Aggressive Indoctrination Processes of My Little Brothers

(Copied and Pasted from my previous site)

Every day, my mother makes it obligatory for my brothers to learn Quranic Arabic from Nouman Ali Khan in the Bayyinah institute website, watch his lectures, listen to music such as Jae Deen, Karter Zaher, etc. recite extra dua, and she spends a lot of face to face time with them where she teaches them about Islam, their duties on this earth, Allah, etc. Click to keep on reading!
