Reader comment on item: More Converts to Terrorism

Daniel Pipes is so right-on with his observations. here is my two cents' worth:

Converts to Islam are similar to atheists, mad at God for not getting their own way.
Converts to Islam, if women, want to abdicate responsibility for themselves and probably have masochistic personality traits.
Converts to Islam, if men, want to control women and want to tell other people how to live. they are very likely alcoholic personalities who want to be the director on their own stage in life and when the actors do not do what they want, they get upset. some folks turn to alcohol, some to drugs, and of course some to "religion" if you care to call it that. Islam is actually just a big reactionary cult, similar in many ways to the Mormon religion, which is also a big cult, but with a difference: Mormons teach people to take care of their families.
Converts to Islam are losers who are unhappy with their own lives.
Converts to Islam are not converting so that they can help the widows and orphans.
They want to play dress-up and hurt people who don't do as they say, Inshallah.
Take the subjugation of women out of the Islam and they would have no "religion."

thank you for all you do and Merry Christmas.

I am just a granny.
