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.
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.

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.
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.
Shouldn’t you be in school?
First he lost his wife. Now he’s lost his mind.
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.
Yes. Very, very sad.
I’ve got $10,000 that says he would be up in arms and protesting if the Catholic church mandated city wide calls to prayer anywhere.
Last night I watched Taken with LN and thought I would see his new movie but I just changed my mind what an Idiot.
One more actor to add to a long list of those I will not pay to watch (or watch on TV).
>Agree. Im sure this guy went through a horrible crisis of faith, and anyone that thinks they could survive such a loss under such conditions without challenges is lying to himself.<
I’m sure Corrie TenBoom would disagree with you.
Liam, soon to convert from loving forgiveness to murdering terrorist
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.
I liked Liam as an actor, but I’m glad he’s all washed up.
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.
“for the first week it drives you crazy, and then it just gets into your spirit”
Can you say “brain washing”?
And in the evening. Wonder what happened with that, does it still happen? I now live in the country and don’t know if the bells still ring.
Maybe there is a family member he wants to beat or kill.
Alrighty, Liam, you’ve just made your way onto the don’t watch ever list.
He is madly in love: has a new GF..
Mad at his mom?
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.
So will he still be a liberal after he converts, or will he go full Cat Stephens?
Cat Stephens is scary!
No problem. I think he is not “gone,” and with proper intervention can again begin to understand his life.
What? No beer with your BLT or pork roast?
THAT is stupid!
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.
Just another “who gives a rip?” news story.
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.
...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.
My favorite actors and actresses until I learned of their fuzzy headed liberal politics etc. Now on my shyte list meaning I won’t spend one thin dime to see any of their movies.
I don’t recall Jesus’s commandment that you give up on someone due to their political persuasions.
And another one bites the dust. My “can watch list” grows ever shorter.
Doesn't sound like a Muslim to me. Sounds like a typical Hollyweird airhead.
