mom, the hadiths started it.

mom, the hadiths started it.
Hello I'm la-czúza (the hag), I'm a libyan 18 years old guy from tripoli. I grew up in a relatively religious family (very religious by western standards, though not extremely).
Libyan society is religious obviously. We got islamic education at school, the attendance rate is high...etc.

I ignored my doubts whenever they arose. Until when I got 16, I checked a ruling (fatwa) about music (everyone was talking about how music is haram and I was looking for Evidence). I got some hadiths, and kept checking more and more of them. at the beginning, I Followed many (pascal's wager). But the hadiths got so unbearable I became a quranist (kinda). In the middle of my 17th year, I lost my faith in Islam completely (it was confusing). as a consequence, I accepted the fact that I'm gayBig Grin.
I became more open minded, stopped avoiding other religions (on the Internet of course, libya is "one hundred percent" malikite sunni tribal arabs).

"Arabs" can't tell the difference between atheists and communists, why?

If it's gonna make you feel any better, many Americans cannot either, sad but true ...

I'm naturalized citizen and one of the first things they asked me in the American embassy was if I was ever member of the communist party and, of course, if I believed in god, lol.

Atheism is still a taboo here, cold war era scare-tactics propaganda which equated atheism with communism is still deeply rooted inside of the minds of many FSM Grin

When I lost my interest with Islam in a wee I looked into Qur'anism. It was better but still stupid.
It is good to know you are gay also. I am happy that Islam did not destroy you and prevent you from accepting yourself as it does to so many others.
