Support for Apostates

I have set up a Site Meter utility (www.sitemeter.com) on this blog, which gathers some limited information about numbers of visitors etc. One piece of information gathered is the name of the website from which the visitor arrived.

One such gave me pause to think.

Now, this blog has not been in existence for very long, and so a high ranking in a Google search cannot be expected yet.
Imagine my surprise when I found that someone had the perseverence to look through no less than 35 pages of Google search results, before finding this blog. Clearly highly motivated! But, consider the search words "british apostates".

Perhaps it was someone feeling desperate, brought up as a Muslim, but now having serious doubts, and looking for support.

I have no idea whether there is a support network for people in such circumstances. Such a network would of necessity have to be very secretive, and so it is not clear how anybody would know who to contact. The best people to organise such a network would be ex-Muslims themselves. However, if it is possible for me to be of assistance, via this blog, then I am very happy to do so.

I am not sure who you should turn to for support. I doubt that a social worker would understand your difficulties. Maybe you could speak with your local Vicar or Priest. Don't be shy, they are generally very kind hearted and would be more than willing to help. They should also have a fair understanding of Islam. Of course, Vicars are very busy people, and so it would be wise to make an appointment if possible.

I am not suggesting that you should immediately convert to Christianity, or any other religion. As you are born with free will, it is your decision and choice of which religion to follow, if any. It may be that a break from religion for a few years would be best, while you come to terms with your new perspective.

It may be that the final hold over you that Islam makes, is the fear of Hell. Now, I cannot prove scientifically to you wether Hell exists or not, but suppose that it does not. Would you really wish to spend your entire life burdened with fear and guilt?

Now suppose that Hell does exist. If you behaved well during your life, been kind and generous where you are able, then surely you have a good chance to avoid Hell. How can it be therefore that Islam teaches you to slaughter the non-believers? How can such an action lead to Paradise?

I had an interesting exchange of views with a Muslim, who wrote these words about terrorists:


Sadly, the truth is that Islam is not a religion of peace.

There are two websites that may be helpful:

Faith Freedom (www.faithfreedom.org)


Apostates of Islam (www.apostatesofislam.com)

Finally, you should realise that the British people are generally fair minded. There is a great concern at the present time for our security, and so it is natural that Islam itself should be under scrutiny. There is nothing but admiration and praise for those who can think for themselves, and turn their back on that which is harmful. It is a brave thing to do. Surely we are all fellow humans, and we owe a duty of care to each other.

Humanity needs peace not Islam.

The faithfreedom website has had well over 4,000,000 hits in a year. Granted some of that is the hate mail one expects to be directed to such brave people, Islam kills its apostates.
Once the decent human being realises he/she has been connned by this evil death cult they leave in droves. The qu'ran cannot stand a spotlight shone on it because the math. science and timelines dont add up. intelligent muslims are waking up faster than converts can be recruited.
