every person has an innate ability to recognize the truth when he sees or hears it and you have it too when you say

I agree that the modern western models of society are also bad – in fact they are too greedy, obscene and inhuman – but islam's performance is not better.

But instead of blaming islam, don't you think it is muslims who have fallen short of the ideals that they were supposed follow? Remember George Bernard Shaw?

Can muslims accept the idea that god is someone private and public life has to be organised on non-religious (but not immoral) lines

but then why hindus wear their religion on their sleeves and at the drop of a hat we are tortured with something like "in india we... or no we indians don't..." keep it to yourself. but if you can't help being so about it then be prepared to answer simple questions like why do you believe what you believe.

and that a muslim can leave islam without being injured or persecuted? In islam it is human beings talking in the name of the arab god who exrecise fascist powers.

this is a matter of legislation. what happens nowadays to a person who turns against his own country and is guilty of high treason? you can research it that is if you want to. there is nothing like that in the Quran.

and since you believe in god, do you also believe in the possibility of revelation? just curious.
