Yes, treating them like chattal instead of the whore/maddona dichotomy.

I lived in Saudi Arabia for five years, studied enough about Islam to see that it has kept its people from progressing through "The Enlightenment." Converting to Islam is like going back in time 400 years.

You gotta love the tolerance for other religions in Islam or for that matter Catholicism. It's either OUR way or the highway.

Jose Padilla will be the tip of the iceberg. They are also looking for "Lily Whites". Many useful idiots.

Emptiness just sucks in more emptiness.

As a Latina she can't remove the statue. This means then that just being Latino/Latina is equivalent to being loyal to the Roman Catholic system, does it not? That would be the impression.

In business after business in the Philippines you can see, hanging on the walls, god shelves, where BOTH Roman Catholic idols and Buddhist idols are placed together, and incense is burning there. It is always strange to me that no Roman Catholic priest ever tries to tell these people that you cannot mix Christ with idolatrous religions. Oops! I forgot. Roman Catholicism itself is idolatrous. They bow to idols and kiss cement or ceramic, or plastic statues.

At the University of Texas, she was introduced to Islam in a Middle East history course and during Muslim student events. At the end of her freshman year, Martinez recited the shehada , the vow a person takes to become a Muslim. When she told her Catholic family, they gave her an ultimatum: Leave Islam or leave their house. Martinez left.

Publicly-funded universities as a tool of Muslim recruiting. Our tolerance -- no, make that encouragement -- of intolerance will destroy us.

The problem is, at least from the description in the article, that the families weren't even practicing Catholicism. Rather than that, it sounds as if they were "cultural" Catholics.

Doesn't matter whether you're a Protstant, Catholic, Jew, Muslim, or atheist: if you dress like a slut, you're going to get treated like one. If you go out and hang in bars all night, you're going to deal with the same consequences.

Complaints about bikini-clad women on the covers of CD's or magazines or whatever? Excuse me, but show me in the Catechism where that kind of behavior is acceptable.

Frankly, this article comes off to me as a very correct condemnation of the modern, feel-good Church and a condemnation of the modern, souless, feel-good society.

Growing up, she was a beach-going, tank top-wearing, salsa-dancing girl. Now, she's a devout Muslim who favors Islamic garments and avoids socializing with men.

Well I missed this line on the first reading. All she needed to do was to dress more conservatively and set her socialization standards a bit higher, instead she chose islam. She classified her hijab as helping her gain respect in front of the day-workers. They don't respect, stunned by her maybe, respect doubtful. The hijab did nothing but hide her from societies eyes, it did not create respect for her or women.

I feel very sorry for this misguided soul. As far as things being complicated in the catholic religion, I guess the priests had better come up with better explanations. I've asked similar questions to many a priest, only to find my own answers in the Bible.

The competition is on for their very lives & souls. Islam sits in God's judgment seat over her life, but only God can judge her soul. May God have mercy on her and on the priest who couldn't inspire her continued faith in Jesus Christ.

Very funny article. Thanks for posting.

The funny part is that the most logical explanation for the "macho" part of Iberian culture, as compared to that of other Mediterranean Catholic countries, is the period of Muslim domination of the peninsula.

The extreme identification of male "honor" with female virtue is straight out of the honor killing aspect of Arab culture.

Although the Spanish "point of honor" requires killing the rapist or seducer, not the sister or daughter. Personally, I consider that a considerable improvement.

A Clash of culture, faith (latina conversions to islam)

Not surprising since the core values of certain Latin American cultures were strongly shaped by the Muslim worldview during the centuries of Moorish occupation of large parts of Spain.

So when will the first illegal alien convert blow something up here in the good old USA? That could certainly solve a couple of apathy issues here.

...Latino women find what most westerners rarely see -- a respect for women, unlike, some converts say, the machismo culture in which they were raised.

...and then they convert to Islam, which we all know fosters great respect for women. /sarc

I don't buy the "Islam is easy!" explanation, nor the "tight-knit/family oriented" load of bull. These women arrive here and find "respect" - but what they evidently feel most comfortable with is subservience.

This is like the third or fourth different article I've seen about Hispanics converting to Islam.

Wonder what the motive of the MSM is in this? Must be a slow news year.
