Q. WHO'D LIKE TO JOIN TEAM ORACLE?
As you may know, we have a weekly feature, Team Oracle, whereby each Friday we open questions of a personal nature to all of you to answer too. Then, the following Friday, I post a selection of the best answers, alongside my own reply.

ANYONE can join in so, if you'd like to, please email your response to the following question, in no more than 250 words, to theoracle@coldplay.com before midnight Thursday 13th February.

Oracle I'm desperate! There's something I wanna do & it's kinda against my religion. I'm a believer but that thing I wanna do won't reduce my faith though. People in my city would judge me for doing it and that thing is connected to my religion.
It would be better if I didn't say what is it because it needs a lot of explaining. Anyway I wanna you to help me. Something I used to do for my religion but I no more wanna do it but I can't make a choice. Shall I stop doing it and face the consequences or keep on doing it even though I'm a little bit not comfortable with it.
It's like choosing between MY GOD and my own desires.
I can't stop thinking. That's really annoying and it would be bad if I stopped doing it. Maybe I'll continue doing it but in the future but I just wanna stop doing it for now.
I know it's gonna be difficult for you to help me cuz you don't know what that thing is but I believe that you're wise enough to tell me your opinion. Thanks for your time and I would really appreciate if you helped me.
Thank you. Nesma, U.K.
