A whole lotta a dubious ijtihad going on

Don’t have time to say more, but I see that I, however implausibly and in spite of my anti-lobbying  for the award, got an Honorable Mention for… groan…the category of "Best Ijtihad" in the Brass Crescent Awards.

The winner was Ali Eteraz, a fact that will definitely roil some folks on the conservative end of the spectrum.

A reluctant thank you–and reproach for questionable taste–to those who voted for me for this category.

Perhaps people just liked the perverse humor of voting for the guy who urged them to pick anybody but him.

More later.

    Congrats from my side as well. I think Ijtihad in this particular sense is synonymous to dynamism of thought. In that sense, you are definitely a deserving choice.
