In keeping with the theme of the week, Aslan stated that fatwas (via the Internet) are now a dime a dozen and the faithful can shop for the ones they want to follow (sort of like scanning the bookshelves in a xtn bookstore for the "right" parenting book or the right way to pray... you decide, rather than relying on a papal bull or encyclical). No relying on clerics to issue how to practice the faith; you can pick the fatwas you want to follow!
Here's fatwaonline.com for a sample of how the Internet is changing the face of Islam.
Islamonline.com combines the latest news events with fatwas (see lower righthand box as you scroll).
Gives some substance to the ideas Aslan is expressing: reformation, baby, and we get to watch it happen.
