DerekMorr: I don't think Irshad Manji is very much read by Muslims. And I don't really see in what sense she can be considered a Muslim by other Muslims: she's a lesbian, she loves Israel, and so on... Nothing that will help her with her co-religionists. I don't see her as having much success except in book sales. And I don't see any real following of hers.

Anyway, she's nice, but she's emotionally attached to calling herself a Muslim. In her book, she even writes something like that she could have become an atheist if she lived in Iran.
