    ^ POTM. Hands down. He's getting it.

    قل للمليحة في الخمار الأسود
    مـاذا فـعــلت بــناسـك مـتـعـبد

    قـد كـان شـمّر لــلـصلاة ثـيابه
    حتى خـطرت له بباب المسجد

    ردي عليـه صـلاتـه وصيـامــه
    لا تـقــتـلــيه بـحـق ديــن محمد

    Way too often members seem to get confused about what this forum was meant to do and seem to think that it is and should be dedicated to exposing Islam, and serious debate, serious topics, with no frills attached.

    However that was not what this forum was ever started for quite frankly.  It was started to provide a place for ex muslims to find other ex muslims.  To talk about whatever ails them, and not feel so isolated or alone having chosen to reject their former support networks.

    This will mean that you get a mix, serious talk, not so serious, rude, jokey, hostile, infact its human, and social, so what do you expect?

    I'm a bit tired of being judged by some members about the slipping standards of this forum, they aren't slipping, they were never meant to be there in the first place.  Your idea that this forum is meant to expose islam is wrong.  This forum is about being a social place for ex muslims.  Should it expose Islam along the way, hey whoopee, but if it makes muslims feel better in their judgements too, so what.

    What do you come here for?

    Do you come believing we are here to work against islam and debate only?

    Do you come because you like the company?

    Enjoy finding ex muslims like yourself?

    Feel less alone?

    What do you come here for?


    Well said, Berbs.  Afro As you say this place was always and I hope always will be a place for ex-Muslims to come together, find support, help, vent, relax and chill etc...

    I enjoy discussing serious stuff too - but don't do it to "expose" Islam (even less to "destroy" Islam) - but just coz I like discussing stuff - however I'm here mainly for the company - a place where others have been through similar things I have and I can share and just hang out. Smiley

    yeh right.. either you are sleep walking or you don't know what you are doing..

    Do not let silence become your legacy

    the beloved betrayed me and turned in to  a Muslim

    I'm here because I heard there was punch and pie.

    I don't come here any more due to unfair moderation.

    I come here for the people, and the atmosphere. There's a great mix of intelligent discussion, venting of frustrations, shared support, and general silliness. As The Wyre said, there's a solidarity here that you can't find anywhere else, and it's present even if a topic has nothing to do with Islam or religion. This forum is just as much about moving past Islam as it is about Islam.

    And it just happens to be truly the best damn forum on the internet. cool2

    I hear the rains, I see the fire, I feel the flame. It doesn't change the faces I want to blame for the shame I'm feeling.
    But the winds of change will blow again. And we're the lucky ones who travel on towards the sun.

    Can you hear it calling you?

    I was here for boobies!

    But they are no better than my moobies Wink

    Im here for Hassan but not for his intellectual brilliance which is only second to mine Wink

    But for his compassion.

    As for exposing islam - bollocks to that!

    As for company?  I would rather have my head drilled with a rusty drill Wink

    Im here to kill time Wink

    And to amuse myself with my own brilliance Wink

    If I live or if I die.

    Do you come believing we are here to work against islam and debate only?

    no

    Do you come because you like the company?

    absolutely!

    Enjoy finding ex muslims like yourself?

    Definitely!

    Feel less alone?

    Without question!

    What do you come here for?

    To learn more about what I used to believe.  I have gained a wealth of wisdom,
    and deeper understanding if Islam.  I had no idea there were so many things
    I took for granted, and blinded an eye to questions I had, feeling so damned
    bamboozled.... again.  I was AFRAID of going to hell.

    I have found so much healing here, like minded people to share with.  Even
    those that aren't like minded offer a plethora of incredible info that helps
    ease my mind, and validate the way I currently believe.

    I have turned to CEMB in times of trouble, and without fail, have gleened
    things that comforted me, that enabled me to think rationally, and helped
    me become a better human being.

    There so much more, but i come here because CEMB has had an extremely
    positive influence on my life, and I enjoy exchanging with so many people
    here!

    I find comfort coming here knowing that there are other people who have had similar experiences, feelings and dilemmas as me - definitely this makes me feel less alone.

    But not just that, I come to learn from and enjoy the funny, thoughtful, witty and brilliant people on this forum. Don't know what I would have done without the Urban Dictionary though.  Cheesy

    I initially came here for the support.

    I now come here for the support, company, insight and humour.
