We here at EXMNA are dedicated to gathering, empowering, and broadcasting the voices of Ex-Muslims. We consider it our duty to highlight the gems of apostate intellectual discourse to the best of our ability. For this reason we work on bringing together here individual Ex-Muslim bloggers to form an apostate blogging community. Leaving Islam is not a simple or monolithic process. We aim to provide a platform for a wide variety of apostates’ viewpoints in order to help our readers gain a nuanced understanding of the issues around leaving Islam.
Ex-Muslim Blogs is a collection of essays and commentaries from various writers and bloggers, dealing with topics relevant to apostates and individuals from Muslim backgrounds. We deeply appreciate all the time and effort that our Ex-Muslim bloggers are putting into writing, editing, and sharing their ideas.
We are always happy to hear from Ex-Muslims who want to be part of this blogging community!
If you are an Ex-Muslim non-theistic writer and want to write for ExMuslimBlogs.com, email your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each blogger has her or his own stories and insights to share. Read them all at their blogs:
