"Neeson Islam"

I think people want to feel a sense of community, as well as the desire to pass some of the responsibilities of living on to an organization. If you belong to something that tells you what is right, you dont have to venture into thinking for yourself, you just act accordingly and feel that fulfilment. This is not always the case, but often enough people join religious groups, go to university, join the millitary, call themselves republican etc.... so they dont have to think for themselves.

Why would a modern, intelligent man consider becoming a Christian? A Jew? An Athiest? None of the above? My guess is something in their teachings resonated with him and is helping him to connect with his true self. He's a grown man, this was not a hasty decision, I assure you.

Becoming Muslim is not something I would consider because it does not resonate with me, but I don't understand why it's not okay for someone else to become Muslim if it suits their own personal beliefs?


We're all just people.

and if you were looking to kill people in the name of god, would you become christian?
if you were looking to get it on with young boys and have your bosses cover for you, would you become a priest?

if you were looking to spread herpes to newborn boys, killing them (see the NY Daily news), would you become a mohel?

there's bad in all faiths but, for most folks, the good outshines the bad and that is why people continue to follow.

That kind of hatred coming from you is not new
stop the racism for once and give developed argument not only bashing a billion of muslim
in every religion we have extremist (crazy people) dont generalise

Liam Neeson is a great respectfull actor .. if he decide to convert to islam
then you should respect him or any other person

Crackeur .. your herpes comment is disturbing .. to the new born ... wth

not the first time a story about a mohel passing along the STD has hit the papers. Some orthodox faction of judaism have this ritual where the mohel sucks the blood from the circumcision and there have been cases where the mohel has herpes and, in the case in today's paper, the kid contracted it and died from it.

Crazy stuff for sure but, as I said, it's a tiny portion of the jewish community that practices this. Much like the other examples I mentioned represent a tiny portion of the overall communty.
