Not all Moslems are the same

The use of the term “Moslem” is an inaccurate and unhelpful description in this ongoing multicultural debate. There are Moslems on all continents and they are any number of different nationalities.
I happen to be an Anglican, and that is perhaps a more accurate cultural descriptor than the word Moslem. Particularly since even American Anglicans (Episcopalians) seem to be a bit "Englishy". And although it is difficult to describe us as one cultural group we all seem to have a certain reserve, perhaps a certain tolerance for difference, and perhaps we are quiet people ....but things are not like they were 20 years ago

But no one would dream of primarily defining my cultural heritage by my religious affiliation. There are, incidentally, in the quite small Anglican community in South Australia people from all continents and any number of different nationalities. Just like the Moslems!
