Today at our weekly meeting, we were discussing Muslim and Islamic practices regarding marriage, and domestic violence. A lot of definitely false statements were bandied about, and I was really surprised and uncomfortable with how ignorant a lot of people were about the different cultures.
But here's where I'm an asshole, because I don't actually know the difference between Muslim and Islam, and I don't know many distinct features of either culture, so I couldn't pipe up and correct anyone. I could only vaguely tell when a statement was very wrong, but not what the truth was. Does one accept stoning a woman for leaving her husband (regardless of how he treats her), and the other not? I have no idea.
I wish I knew more. Add that to the huge-ass list.
