Wow. There's hope for us yet.
There is still hope for Muslims who practice taqiyya.
"PROFESSOR HELEN EBAUGH
(Dept. of Sociology, University of Houston; Author of The Gülen Movement
): When Fethullah Gülen began preaching in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s in Turkey, his message was we don’t need more madrassas. We need schools that would promote science and math and secular subjects, and his contention was that one can be modern and one can be scientific and still be a good Muslim.
Interpretation: "We need schools that would adapt every science to Islam. One can be scientific and still be a good Muslim as exemplied by Harun Yahya".
SEVERSON: Bill Martin is a senior fellow in religion and public policy at the James Baker Institute at Rice University. He says the Gülen movement is different from fundamentalist Islam because they respect all faiths and believe religion is compatible with science.
Bill Martin does not know a lot about the Gülen movement. What mostly concerns Gülen is actually how science can be made compatible with Islam. Gülen has also written several books to bash Christianity and Judaism. In one of his books written in Turkish he gives praise to Allah for revealing the Qur'an, "without which it would be impossible to understand the original message delivered by Prophet Jesus due to the absurdities and contradictions of the New Testament texts and fabricated Christian tenets". Islamic form of respect for other religions.
WILLIAM MARTIN (Senior Fellow, James Baker Institute at Rice University): I think it’s fair to say that Islam has had difficulty in coming to terms with modernity, and in that I think that the Gülen movement offers a much more positive picture of what Islam can be...."
It is true that Gülen offers a more positive picture of what Islam can be, but it is not what Islam actually IS. Only a false picture drawn by him in accordance with taqiyya.
