Not only criminals convert but also..

Reader comment on item: Did Michael Jackson Convert to Islam?

The article seems to picture Islam as a refuge for criminals. That is absolutly wrong. But if it is right, then it is a plus for Islam not against it. The reason is the fact that the writer does free propaganda for Islam by saying criminals embrace it. One may understand from that that all other religions are TITLE and CLASS religions so they are not the true message. But islam is the true message for being open to all. I think the writer did not do a fair job for crhistianity by adding scores for Islam. I have been noting that many people are pro-Islam , including Mr Pipes, with the way they try to criticize Islam. It just has opposite effect.

Now do not tell me that Cat Stevens, Ahmad deedat, Queen (although guy he was a british Muslim), and some records show that even Napoleon converted to Islam. Are those all criminals! I do not think so.

My view is that who ever wants to worship some how, Let It Be! ..just let it be and there will be no pain. The same if a Muslim goes Budha..let it be. No one is going to join one's budy to the grave. People are born free and must die free..
