in response to reader comment: Possible reason for not posting here

Lana, I've really appreciated the help and guidance I've received from you and others on this forum. I was ignorant of Islam when I got involved with the man I married in Morocco. His sister told me Muslims respect all religions, and not knowing any better, I believed her. I actually thought the only difference between the two religions/beliefs was that one espoused that Jesus Christ was the son of God and died for our sins, and the other one didn't, but otherwise there was no difference. I should have realized this was a BIG difference. I can only plead ignorance and being naive. I've always been an open minded person, not wanting to judge others based on their beliefs or culture. I'm not saying now that I have a problem with Muslims, but I will no longer allow myself to get involved with one, romantically or otherwise. It upsets me that someone with my name would come on here and express a different opinion, without being clear they were not me. I don't think a man or woman getting involved with a Muslim means he/she has a mental problem. I used to take people at their word, and now no longer will unless I know them well and they have proven they can be trusted. We all live and learn - sometimes the hard way.
