I agree. Pain can do strange things. That, and an acting career where you play characters with sometimes mystical qualities...he’s a fruitcake if he converts.

“first we ask you nicely to join us. Then we tax you. Then we kill you”.

That must be the Twitter definition of Islam.

It fits.

Mark Steyn wrote in “America Alone” that at some point actors would start converting to Islam. He wasn’t all that early in that call.

“That “call to prayers” reference seems familiar somehow...”

Reminds me of when I’m drinking beer I “get the call”.

Maybe he’s got a thing for nine year old girls...acceptable in Islam but not elsewhere.

He's not looking for religion, he's looking for attention and drawing the favor of hollywood.

He's just joined the "Dixie Chicks Club". I'll bet his producers are about to croak with him announcing this madness right here at the opening of his new movie...what an idiot.

I saw a youtube of this guy Neeson. He wants to do comedy - - standup, improv, slapstick...
This is just a gag.

Yeah, whatevah. It’ll be a Hollywood conversion, not a real one.

Pretty stupid, though.

I think there is a disconnect in all forms of Christian organizations (not just the Catholic church) to the adherents...it is a sad reality that must be confronted.

A living, breathing, REAL faith is important. Too many of our churches, I fear, have lost the way to communicate that faith.

Washed-up actor desperate for publicity.


I don’t think Neeson is washed up. He’s done some great stuff, even recently—which makes this pretty sad. Just another data point proving the “William Shatner Rule”: never assume you know an actor by the characters they portray.

Amen to the boycott. A shame really as I have enjoyed a lot of his work. Thanks for F ing up Chronicles of Narnia too. I remember when you came out and said it was for muslimes too and I wondered when you would be coming out of the closet.

Liam must still be mourning the loss of his beautiful wife a couple years ago. Sometimes a terrible loss causes us to question our faith and even consider unconventional or irrational paths just to try to get past the grief. I wish him well.

If he is really going to dump Christianity for Islam, then he never had any faith to begin with.

I didn’t realise that he is a Catholic. He’s from Ballymena, Co Antrim, Northern Ireland, a fiercely loyalist town.

I have often been told by people who know him that he is a very kind and thoughtful man. I won’t disparage him, but I would hope that he reconsiders his serious consideration of Islam. I am a protestant, but can feel the Lord more in St Peters than in Mecca.

Sad. And stupid. And artistic. He’s impressed with the theatrics of his stay in Istanbul. So like any good actor, he creates a new drama in his life. Dumping his own heritage for a different story line.

That’s right, pull out a one-in-a-million martyr. It’s precisely this lack of compassion that sends people to other religions than Christianity. Congrats.

LS, please forgive my comment. Yes, you are correct that losing one’s beloved wife/husband would definitely challenge a person. But, with the help of God, many will find their way back, their faith strengthened.

I agree that Mr Neeson needs our prayers.

"One more actor to add to a long list of those I will not pay to watch (or watch on TV)."

What's the entire list? I hope Colin Firth is not on it.

Yesterday I was browsing the DVD bargain bin and ended not buying anything because I wasn't sure about some actors.

I am saddened with Liam's decision. He was one of my favorite actors.

BTW, I’m a part of the “Hollywood Prayer Network.” We pair up with industry professionals-—all levels-—and pray for them as they try to stay strong in the film business. Every couple of weeks we get an update on stars, celebs, and so on who are going through tough times and I’m impressed that there are large numbers of committed people who are trying to intercede for these people that they can see the light. It’s easier to call them names and criticize than it is to do the tough daily work of prayer.

it just gets into your spirit and it’s the most beautiful, beautiful thing.

Hmmm, just like Obama!

On February 27th, speaking to Kristof of The New York Times, Barack Hussein Obama said the Muslim call to prayer is "one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset."

In an interview with Nicholas Kristof, published in The New York Times, Obama recited the Muslim call to prayer, the Adhan, "with a first-class [Arabic] accent."
The opening lines of the Adhan (Azaan) is the Shahada:

"Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
I witness that there is no god but Allah
I witness that there is no god but Allah
I witness that Muhammad is his prophet"

According to Islamic scholars, reciting the Shahada, the Muslim declaration of faith, makes one a Muslim. This simple yet profound statement expresses a Muslim's complete acceptance of, and total commitment to, the message of Islam. Obama chanted it with pride and finesse.

I'll cut the guy a little slack. Having your wife horribly injured in a skiing accident, then having her die because she was unable to get half-decent treatment where she was (in Canada, eventually airlifted to the US) ....

...would make anyone question their values. A wise man would turn against the system that caused his problems. Unfortunately, it looks like he turned his anger inward.

I don't think we have anything to worry about. I went back all the way to the HuffnPuff Post article that Weasel Zipper is referring to and it's all just vacuous talk on Neesom’s part. In the end he says “I'm constantly reading books on God or the absence of God and atheism.”

Doesn't sound like a Muslim to me. Sounds like a typical Hollyweird airhead.
