On praiseworthy differences, the insecurity of having to be absolute

Published by Shafiq Morton on Wednesday, 12 March 2014
SOME time ago, after a rather fruitless discussion about innovation in Islam, I tweeted:  ‘the intellectual insecurity of having to be absolute is absolute insecurity’.

My feeling about those of the absolutist persuasion (and I’m not necessarily referring to the above) is that when posed with possible alternatives to a hypothesis, the dogmatic extremist will always think that because it’s unfamiliar, he is being presented with something outside of Islam.

Grant the Thornton Islamic Society a long term lease on ERF 1102 or allow for them to purchase the Erf

Published on Wednesday, 5 February 2014

The Thornton Islamic Society currently does not have a permanent place of worship and have been in negotiations with the City for years now to no avail. Yesterday they launched an online petition at: https://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/patricia-de-lille-grant-the-thornton-islamic-society-a-long-term-lease-on-erf-1102-or-allow-for-them-to-purchase-the-erf

Please can we ask that you sign our the petition and also share this petition with your friends and family; they do not have to live in Thornton. The more people we make aware of our plight, the more the City is forced to take note and act.
