Young Muslims take to Twitter to denounce Islamic State

Imagine this: Good news out of the Middle East. Young Muslims have begun a Twitter campaign, #NotInMyName, to denounce the Islamic State militant group. They say the group does not represent Islam. They say they are embarrassed by those who create any linkage between the Islamic State and Islam.

In fact, the Islamic State is the latest perverted manifestation of mental illness wrapped in the name of religion.

 Healing and wellness to combat this illness and, in the long run, this can only happen from within. That moderate Muslims are denouncing the Islamic State is a sign this illness -- akin to some form of fascism, really -- is being rejected from within. This is good news.
