Lauren Booth Converts to Islam After 'Holy Experience'
israelnationalnews.com ^ | 10.22.2010 | Chana Ya'ar

Posted on 10/25/2010 8:55:35 AM PDT by VU4G10

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.”

I hope she likes the part of Islam that allows her husband to beat her. He’s probably looking forward to it...

I wonder how Tony Blair feels about this. Were this my sister, I would be in “alarm overload” by now.

Maybe she should have joined A.A instead.

Was it the oppression that drew her in? Or perhaps she witnessed a stoning and saw the light?

Nope. More than likely, she was influenced by a demon of Satan that influenced her with ‘a strong delusion’.

She’ll find out the truth....someday.

Everywhere you look there’s pink ribbons for breast cancer awareness. What color ribbons are there for finding a cure for STUPID?!

Right after her Imam convinces her it's Allah's will for her to blow up a palace or something.....

shot of spiritual morphine.

Morphine basically deadens the senses, doesn't it?

So, is this a good thing, sister?

She’ll revert after another sort of holy experience.

Then they’ll put her on the better off dead list.

Since He knew this was going to happen, I figure it’s all part of God’s plan.

So she’s read 60 pages of the Mohammad’s “revelations” and that plus jet lag causes her to convert? What did she convert from?? Journalism?
I’m sure she’s grateful to something for detox. But I’m not sure praying to the muzzie version of god is superior to praying to the porceline goddess. Maybe one in the same.
Islam is for the VERY weak of mind.

Nice to know she studied so much before converting. She’s on page 60 of the Koran. Must be some powerful ‘stuff’ in that first 60 pages. My guess is she hadn’t read page one before making the jump. (Puddin’ headed westerners...)

Temporary insanity led her to the conversion. Unfortunately for her now, she will be the subject of death threats if she gets over her insanity and decides to return to the world of normal human beings.

What will she think when she reaches page 80. Will she feel another shot of morphine that brings her back to sanity? I doubt it.

He's only allowed to beat her if he's a Muslim himself. He'll need to also convert, or she'll need to divorce him, because Muslim women may not marry non-Muslims.

You can have a “spiritual experience” at a seance or with a ouija board, but you sure aren’t “meeting God” when you do so.

This is why “experience” in spiritual matters can be so dangerous, even/especially for Christians.

So a C-list useful idiot relative of a former prime minister comes down on Mohammed’s side after all these years.

Yawn ...

I also haven’t had a drink in 45 days,

This is the money line...this is a woman who has been looking for something to change her life, when all she had to do was go to an AA meeting where you find your own LOVING God.
