"Do not judge the truth by what men say about it. Know the truth, and then judge men by what they say about it." --Ali ibn Abi Talib.
I want to make new friends with whom I can have challenging and open conversations about religion. I do not believe my religion is the only way, and I don't want to be told how to practice my religion. I am Shi'a because I believe in fighting against oppression, primarily, and a lot of other aspects of Shiism that I like. I do not think that Shi'a is better than Sunni or Sunni is better than Shi'a, we should all be united and not concentrate on the differences. Though I like ritual, I try to focus on the inner aspect of religion, not just the outer practice. I believe that everyone is a child of God and in many senses I am a Sufi.
