He must hang around with Cat Stevens. Dang, I think I am showing my age with that statement.

So here's a question, why do people change their names when they convert to Islam? Why can't John Smith still be John Smith and be a Muslim? It's not like these guys are arabic.

Changing your name is not required but many converts choose to. The other change that happens it seems it that Americans who convert change how they look. Many young men go to Muslim countries to learn more about Islam. I know several people who once they converted changed their names and then went to study in Muslim countries so they could learn about Islam, and arabic.

"Whilst apostatising from the Islamic faith is a dangerous thing to do, many outspoken Muslim preachers, mullahs, imams, scholars, missionaries and even terrorists have apostatized and become atheists, Buddhists, Christians, Hindu's etc. In doing so, many have taken it upon themselves to oppose the Islamic ideology and have become celebrities in their own right. This page contains names and links to further information about these notable former Muslims."

So what's your point 'in world'??

HA, I immediately thought it was going to be about Cat Stevens too... I'm only 26, so no worries there.

And I've never heard of this 'LOON' character. Maybe he converted because his name is ridiculous and he wasn't selling any albums A conversion of last resort.

Muslims often brag and gloat over news of non-muslims converting to Islam, but they don't tell other side of the story where muslims are leaving Islam in droves. There are more muslims leaving Islam than new converts joining Islam. Muslims are leaving Islam in millions, which is unprecedented in the history of Islam.

Appendix Nineteen-- Islam is in a Shambles-- Many Muslims Convert to Christianity

I was sickened when I saw an interview with Cat Stevens after he converted. He no longer wrote or sang his beautiful songs, and he said if he could, he would destroy all the music he had ever written.

He gave the world so much joy with his music. He always looked at peace.

Now he just looks empty and angry.
