The Enemy of My Enemy is a quranist..


Being a Quranist is sometimes like playing war in pre 1945 Europe. You gang up with France to whack Italy, then launch an Armada with Spain to whack England then join all the others to whack the Germans…

There are 16 kinds of quranism at present. 16 types of approaches towards the Quran! This is due to the fact that we allow free thinking and a democratic approach to the book. But it does lead to many wierd scenarios..

I was bickering with ‘A’ about the existence of rituals in islam (i dont believe there are). That wasn’t so friendly so I was a little surprised when ‘A’ joined me in the debate against ‘B’ and ‘C’, who believe that RK was the messenger of the covenant.

But that’s how things are with quranists, we have a buffet of views which are so radically different that it will surprise us who we debate with…and who we debate alongside. The key is to remember that we are here to PROTECT the democracy of reading…everyone has a right to read and think!
