Dear old Pope Benedict, bless him, has baptised a prominent Italian muslim.
Muslim leaders in Italy apparantly say the convert was free to choose his faith.
Well, there's a first time for everything, including Islamic acceptance of apostates.
Anyway, Magdi Allam has a few choice words about the Religion of Peace, which he branded 'intrinsically violent.'
Magdi Allam: "Over the years my spirit has been freed from the obscurantism of an ideology that legitimises lies and deception, violent death that leads to homicide and suicide, blind submission to tyranny"
Robert Spencer over at Jihadwatch covers the conversion and controversy at great length.
Well, if such a high profile convert to Islam is killed, doesn't it just prove what many of us say about the Religion of Pigs.
Anyway, on top of all those Iranian conversions to Christianity No Minister also mentioned, what a great way to end Easter Weekend.
You don't have to be religious to see the Achilles heel of the greatest evil of the 21st century: Western freedom will defeat Islam, if we let it. And as I am sure I will be reminded by some, as will the Power of Christ.
UPDATE: NZ Conservative covers the issue here.
