Trying to understand ‘moderate’ Islam

“It’s time we discussed what exactly we mean when we talk about moderate Muslims. Because some people’s use of the term seems to be very different than my own.

My idea of a moderate Muslim – or any other moderate religious adherent – is someone who practises religion in the private sphere and understands the rule of law trumps any religious edict.

But some of the Muslim leaders the media have taken to labelling “moderate” don’t always fit this description.”

I encourage you to read through this email issued by NAMF this week to it’s members. Tell me, does this sound Moderate?
