Mujahedeejit

Apparently the Irish actor Liam Neeson is considering converting to Islam. Neeson was born in Ballymenaand raised in a devout Catholic family.



'The call to prayer happens five times a day, and for the first week,
it drives you crazy, and then it just gets into your spirit, and it's the most beautiful, beautiful thing,' he said.


So you never heard the Angelus rung at home? Or the bells in a French or an Italian town?

One must be charitable. The poor man lost his wife in a skiing accident a couple of years ago and I'm sure that does funny things to your head, but then again he's been coming out with all sorts of nonsense for a while, saying of Aslan:


"Aslan symbolises a Christlike figure, but he also symbolises for me
Mohammed, Buddha and all the great spiritual leaders and prophets over the centuries."

Which is not how CS Lewis saw Aslan. As he wrote ina letter in 1958:


“What might Christ become like, if there really were a world like Narnia and He chose to be incarnate and die and rise again in that world as He actually has done in ours?”

The aesthetics of the Mohammedan call to prayer, is one thing, but if Neeson walks the walk and makes his shahada, what of it.? Well, it's apostasy. He trades in the Living God, the Trinity, Father-Son-And-Holy-Ghost, a Saviour, Jesus Christ, Word-made-flesh, the infallible word of God and an unbroken line of tradition to the Apostles and the promise of Eternal Life for a false god (the moon-god Mohammed turned into Allah, is not the God of Israel, Isaac and Jacob) for an intemperate, incontinent warlord and for the Koran, the ravings of a madman and a false gospel.

And he risks his immortal soul in knowingly swallowing such falsehood.

Sorry to put it so starkly but he would trade the Truth for a lie.

Pray for him.

Well said. This sort of superstar "conversion" makes me angry. It appears so shallow and ill thought out.
And when the star comes from a Catholic background it also seems so sad.
Turning your backon the truth for something that, increasingly, appears rooted in violence and repression.

One can see the attractions of Islam for the natural man: you get to boss women about and you can take revenge on your enemies!

Yes, Patricius. I do wonder if that is the motivation for a some left-wing men who bewilderingly seem to be in the thrall of militant Islam. Browbeaten by feminists for years, you wonder if it's some sort of unconscious rebellion.

Does he know he has to be circumsized? LOL Yes like him I went to Istanbul. I was awoken by the call to prayer. It was a who has the loudest loud speaker competition The government has made moves to ban loud speakers and instead have the Imans sing from the minarets! Poor Liam. Take him to Haghia Sophis and show him the marble floor where all the butchering took place when the Turks took the church. All moques are in fact variations of Byzantine Christian architecture. Poor Liam Tell him about the ethnic ceansing done by the Turks..Poor Liam
