you notice that in almost every case sited of conversion alcohol has something to do with it?

wondering if it isnt some kind of attempted “cure” for a drinking problem by women.

I used to be in a prison ministry band. One of the oddities I discovered was the massive conversion rate of black prisoners to Islam. As I informed myself I discovered the catalyst seemed to fall into a couple of general categories;

1. Islam utterly controls your life. Virtually every question along the lines of “what do I do in this situation” has an answer in islam. It totally controls your life and gives a person who cannot control their life very well a secure anchor with tight boundaries.
2. If you simply follow those rules, then anything bad that happens to you is somebody else’s fault.

In the second one is why islam is such a stain on the world. If you point your head in the right direction when you pray, pray when you are supposed to, enter a room with the correct foot first, wipe your butt with the correct hand, then if your life is a sh!!hole, it is because of the evil joos, or the evil americans, or the evil Christians, etc. Or, in the case of the black muslims in prison, it is the evil white man and all those evil mexicans and asians, etc.
