Who is ignorant?

What is so ignorant in the statement " children born to a muslim father are considered muslim "?!?
That is an inclusive argument and does not contradict your statement "all new borns are considered muslim........................"!

Your statement "According to Islamic law all new borns are considered muslim up to the age of adolescence if they chose some other religion" " is telling us that newborns are muslim only if they chose to follow another religion!!
So who is ignorant!?!? You are the only one that fits that description!
