This comes from an outstanding commentary on Islam by the author of “The Trouble with Islam Today.”

“Why is it that in diverse societies, those who oppose diversity of thought often feel more comfortable getting vocal than those who embrace it?”

Here’s still more wisdom from the article:

Why do we Muslims hang on to the mantra that the Koran â€â€? and Islam â€â€? are pristine? God may very well be perfect, but God transcends a book, a prophet and a belief system. That means we’re free to question without fear that the Almighty will feel threatened by our reasoning, speculating or doubting.
