Turkey to take a step towards modernising Islam

The beeb has been running this story quite a bit today:

Turkey is preparing to publish a document that represents a revolutionary reinterpretation of Islam - and a controversial and radical modernisation of the religion

If this is true then it can only be a good thing. I have felt for some time that the real problem with Islam was the conservatives of its leaders. Its the same problem christian countries had in the past as well. I am sure we can all pick parts of the bible that we are glad aren't taken literally.

If it does go as far the beeb were claiming then there is bound to be a bit of a backlash from the psychopaths who will lose out, so lets hope Turkey holds its nerve.
