All Atheists Are Muslim

It’s time for Zahra and her boyfriend Duncan to move in together. All Zahra needs to do is let her immigrant, Iranian, Muslim parents know that her Southern Californian, white, atheist, non-believing, infidel boyfriend — who she has no intention of marrying anytime soon — should move in with her. In the process, she doesn’t want to get disowned… or forced into an arranged marriage… or end up stoned in a ditch in her parent’s backyard. Indeed, it’s just your average, everyday story of Boy meets Girl, meets thousands of years of cultural tradition and religious doctrine. WARNING: The first 3 rows may be converted to Islam.
