In fact, she respects the way I was raised and tries to understand my culture in order to better herself. A year and a half later, she hasn't even
attempted to suicide bomb my apartment or kill me for watching the World Cup. I might kill her if she DOESN'T let me watch.
To be honest, I am too open to consider myself a Christian anymore, but I was raised in the Methodist church and it made me the peaceful person I am

he'd throw on a keffiyeh and start killing women for showing their ankles in public in the name of Islam.
