Lauren Booth Converts to Islam After 'Holy Experience'
inn ^ | 10/24/10 | Chana Ya'ar

Posted on 10/24/2010 3:20:16 PM PDT by Nachum

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s sister-in-law, Lauren Booth, has converted to Islam after a trip to Iran.

The 43-year-old broadcast journalist, who works for Iran’s English-language Press TV, said she had a “holy experience” while visiting the Fatima al-Masumeh shrine in the city of Qom, a “shot of spiritual morphine.”

Upon her return to Britain, she told British publication The Mail in an interview published Sunday that she decided to immediately convert to Islam.

“Now I don’t eat pork and I read the Koran every day. I’m on page 60,” she told the publication. “I also haven’t had a drink in 45 days, the longest period in 25 years.”

She does realize that this is her final decision on her choice of religion?

Sure hope she knows that she doesn't get to change her mind, if she wishes to continue living.

I cannot understand how someone could be Catholic and convert to Islam. She must have no real knowledge of her religion at all. She is giving up so much for so little.

Larry Poston analyzed conversion stories a while back in Christianity Today. The typical Christian conversion happened to teenagers. The typical Islam conversion happened to adults. Islam offers answers you don't find in "Christianity, Lite." You can't fight a world view with a navel view -- and those who are unwilling to view Christianity in terms of all of life are disarmed before they start.

Gotta run -- I'm watching a Turkish soap opera on another tab!

I'll bet she doesn't know the punishment for leaving Islam.

Typical Westerner...she probably thinks there's a cancellation clause in case she dissatisfied in her choice of religion.

Guess she hadn’t read the “kill the infidels” portion yet. Or maybe she had so she decided to become one of them to protect her burka covered head.

45 days to read 60 pages? She sounds like a real genius.

This “Twelfth Imam” will probably “cause fire to descend from the sky”, either him or his prophet, so as to deceive, if it were possible, the very elect. We must watch.

Because people like her do not understand their faith and are looking for something that is in the news and is different. If you listen to the darkness darkness will be given to you. She certainly never understood Islam, giving up Christ is just stupid and she will come to know that.

She is clearly an exhibitionist, alcoholic and wannabe celebrity.

This has nothing to do with spirituality or finding faith. It has everything to do with an empty head.

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1

Despite her claims of the “concentration camp” conditions in the region that are “worse than Darfur” Booth was photographed buying Snickers candy bars and soft drinks in a well-stocked food store in Gaza.”

At first I thought she was simply deceived by some satanic
vision; however, it appears much simpler than that. She’s nothing more than another useful idiot like Rachel Corrie.

“””I read the Koran every day. I’m on page 60,” “””


Another news report indicated it had been several months ago that she had converted to Muslim.

She must be a quick study to have read 60 pages of the Koran on a daily basis for several months.
