Certain people nowadays talk about something that they claim themselves to be attached to it while at the same time going against it. It sounds confusing but perhaps, could be an act of escapism by establishing an exceptional case.
The Malaysian Dog-loving Lesbian Muslim says:
Though I never miss fasting and paying Zakat (the Muslim tithe), avoid pork, drinking alcohol, smoking and using drugs, I pray sporadically as opposed to five times a day, own a dog with my girlfriend and am open about my homosexuality.
Does being a dog-loving lesbian make me any less of a Muslim?
I try to be a conscientious employee, a devoted and loyal girlfriend, a filial daughter (that’s Confucianism, isn’t it?) and a caring friend. I contribute to society by volunteering and donating every month, educate myself and educate others on what I know best, organize and take part in participatory sports, pay taxes, recycle and abide by communal and governmental laws.
I am sure my apostate friend is as equally devoted at being an exemplary citizen in her community.
When I was coming out as a lesbian almost a decade ago, the conflict between my lifestyle choice and my religion seemed irreconcilable.
Can I be who I am and still keep my religion?
