Elsewhere the shoe appears to be on the other foot. The Washington Post reports that Catholic and Muslim university students are turning to each other for mutual support in pursuit of a chaste lifestyle.
It doesn't say anything about Protestants or evangelicals ... hm ...
Sarah Mumma, a devout Catholic and recent graduate of Northwestern University, affiliated herself closely with the Muslim Cultural Student Association during her time there. In her view, rooming with Muslim girls was a “haven amid the hookup culture and the pervasive dismissal of chastity as backwards, or even sinister.” She found that not only did she share with these Muslim women abstinence as a lifestyle, but found they shared other values in common. “Smart, well connected and serious Muslim girls I met in college became some of my best friends.”
The comment thread is pretty short, but it's clear that to at least some Post readers, "respect others' choices" applies only to some "others" making some choices.
