But I never once forgot that they were Muslims.
This is an excellent point lost on most people.
My guess is that most of the "good" muslims I've met, socialized with and worked with never overtly or covertly suggested that they were muslim.
The few I can identify as muslim I discovered accidentally, or only after many years of knowing them.
Along the same lines, I caught a fragment of a radio report this morning that mentioned that at a recent national convention of Baptists, the group decided to omit the name of Jesus Christ from their opening remarks. Too *controversial* for them, and possibly *offensive to others*, it seems....
I'm not sure which group or where yet, but I'm going to try to track it down Monday.
