New Adults in the Catholic faith, Catechumens are traditionally baptised into the faith and become full fledged Catholics usually around this time of year. It's a culmination of an about a year long learning about our faith by them. Our own church brought 4 new teens and adults into the community this Easter. It's really nothing new. It's just making news because one of the people is a pretty famous non practicing Muslim.

As for religious intolerance, I suggest you ask a religious leader of a Mosque why Apostates are deemed worth of death sentence for leaving Islam.

I'm not sure what is more worthy of comment, the fact that despite the backlash this guy converted, or the fact that the media seized upon it which is like automatically inflating the irritation it would bring to some Muslims, (and even non-Muslims for that matter).

Do you suppose that the marketing people with the Catholic Organization's PR office really felt the need to elevate the visibility of this conversion? I can't imagine them leaning one way or the other.
