Firstly I want to echo everyone's statements of thanx to the admins and moderators of this site, without this site I guess there would be a whole lot more depression around.
When I came here nearly 2 years ago, I did not know that ex-muslims existed, who the fuck leaves Islam, because where I come from, when you leave your religion, you're a murtad and your family has to disown you.
While I am not a fully fledged apostate because of my marriage and family, I see myself more as a person who is muslim in name only, no praying, fasting etc. This site has helped me accept who I am and helped me with information so that I can counter arguments with relatives to the point where they will not discuss religion with me which is a good thing.
So once again thank you for having this forum, I have grown to love this family we have here and feel the pain, sorrow, happiness, joy and hurt of every member when they go through there different issues from time to time. Not real good with words am I? From my post count you will notice I lurk a lot, but I am here everyday watching and reading posts. I am learning all the time and Insh'allah one day I will not be scared to tell my relatives, hey you know what, I am not Muslim anymore !!!
I also pledge to donate £10 (does not sound like a lot, it is in South Africa) to this site by tonight. Just need to figure out how to do it
