Charles is not a muslim

Reader comment on item: Is Prince Charles a Convert to Islam?

Submitted by rw (Australia), Jun 20, 2014 at 01:16

Prince Charles is certainly not a Muslim. His views are fairly well known and perhaps documented. His mentor, apparently, was Laurens van der Post, who wrote some fairly well known books and espoused a vaguely humanistic spirituality, if that makes sense. Prince Charles himself had some sort of quasi spiritual experience which left him convinced of the benevolence of the universe/God and of man's potential. Because of this he does not subscribe to any one 'religion', Muslim or Christian or anything else, but sees in these belief systems attempts to tap into the potential for goodness. For this reason he does not discriminate between what the belief systems actually say and so is happy to comport himself in superficial conformity with any of them, including Islam. The intellectual arrogance of this should be very obvious, but that is another matter.
