What you think you know is not diagnostic of anything. Playing guessing games with you does not make the story more interesting. Staying or leaving inevitably involves personal issues.

That said, it's a very interesting (but enthusiastically personal) account. The question we really want to ask is why anyone stays in Islam, and she has offered no insights of her own about that (because it's a personal account, only about her experience). We already think we know a lot of the answers to that question, and there's nothing in her account that offers further insight.

She almost said something cogent about liberal practitioners, but finally, did not want to go there. It would be true of liberal practitioners of any religion. The fundies just want to get it right. Too bad for them it isn't mathematics.
