He said he had a fatwa put on him, but I only find him saying this in several articles. Someone ought to ask him for a real source.

How does khan still want to be a Muslim when he's voting in favour of same sex marraige.

Can't he see how backwards his religion is?

Christianity is in the same boat, and we see >90% of politicians still being "Christian" even when they sign policies that would go directly against what the bible teaches. Call it cognitive dissonance, compartmentalization, doublethink, or whatever, but it's a well-known thing.

There's a term for it. It's called "religion".

Maybe it's a step towards modernizing Islam?

Islam cannot be modernised, though.

To be fair, declaring that you're leaving Islam tends to get you killed.

Kind of unrelated; but why does London elect left-leaning socialist democrats for mayor?

Genuinely don't get it. Company's elect the mayor there, right? So what do companies gain from a guy like this?

You're probably confusing "London" with "The City of London." Yes, they're different. CGPGrey put out a pretty good video about it.

Mayors have been directly elected in London since a referendum was passed in 1998.

Also, the Labour Party doesn't espouse socialist ideas any more. They have succumbed to the typical pressures of corporate power in order to remain politically relevant.

Apparentaly Im confusing London with 'the London.'

The guys extremely left leaning, either way. Free transportation advocate, anti Police. Makes a lot more sense that urban British would elect this guy, and not businesses.

He also made buses and subways free.

Him and Bernie have similar tactics. Promise free shit, the voters flock to you.

It helps that he bitched about there being too many white people on public transit.

Gotta pander to those white-hating muds and self-hating whites.
