I am an educated Shia man who believes in the necessity of literacy, education and evolution for the ultimate triumph Islam. Some, like my wife, consider my stance an affront to Islamic traditions. I consider my evolution as the next logical step. So im here to ensure my views are documented and scrutinized, to ensure I stay on the right path. Im sure there are others out there like me who feel constrained in a dogmatic relationship, who feel threatened by prevailing extremism around them and who refuse to give up. This is my catharsis. This here is my salvation.
