On this, halfway through Ramadan episode of the Raw Islam Podcast, the listeners voted in the Twitter poll, and Imam Azhar and B.C. Dodge talk about the all-female mosques.
Yet, before we can get into the meat of the episode, something is bothering Imam Azhar that he needs to get off his chest – people arming themselves to attend prayers in the mosque. There have been shootings in other religious venues, such as synagogues and churches, and there was not much conversation around the topic of worshipers arming themselves to attend services.
But there was an altercation in a mosque in Florida where a man was killed, and the reaction was that attendees should start carrying firearms.
Somehow the Govern of Florida was able to pass a law allowing teachers in schools to carry weapons. This is not what the students, parents, or faculty of the students wanted; they wanted common-sense gun laws. And the idea of arming those attending a religious service does not seem to have much common sense.
This leads to the question – would you, or would you allow your family to attend a religious service where you knew people were armed?
