I don't recall being this happy ever before in my life like I have been last couple of months, thanks to my John who just came out of the blue and swept me off my feet. Not only has he flooded me with all his love and affection, but he also showed me the true path which leads to God, the real God. I have been reading a lot of Bible lately and today finally he took me to his church, because he felt that I am ready now. If you guys remember, I had written about my Catholic church experience before, where the priest had actually turned me away, saying they are not allowed to convert Muslims, and if they do, their church would be shutdown. Well, today I was expecting more or less the same kind of reaction, but the Protestant church was nothing like the Catholic church. The pastor was very kind and welcomed me with open arms. All the fellow worshippers were extremely kind and considerate, and they all assured me that my secret is safe with the church. I was there for 2 hours, listening to the sermon and then the songs, and then we all prayed. I just cannot explain in words how peaceful I felt afterwards. I made some new friends, who invited me to their home groups and bible study groups. I am officially a Christan now, and it makes me so proud so say that I accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and I believe he died for our sins. He truly is the son of God and there is no other way to God other than through Jesus.
I am so thankful to God that I never got married to some psychopath misogynistic Muslim loser, though I have to admit I was pretty close doing that couple of times, but then common sense prevailed and I changed my mind. I guess deep down inside, I always knew that something is really screwed up in Islam, and especially in Muslim men. John has really made me the happiest person on earth. Not only does he respect me as an individual who has a mind and opinion of her own, but actually treats me as an equal. None of that male chauvinism that prevails densely in Muslim men, and I am truly blessed that I have him in my life.
With this short note, I would like to wish all my readers a very Happy Easter. God bless.

Easter Greetings from "Liberated"
A few months ago, I posted an article about a former Muslim named Shakila, who lives in a Muslim country and runs the "Liberated" blog. Shakila sends everyone Easter greetings:
