Religious news: Michael Jackson Becomes a Muslim

From Big Network News

Troubled pop star Michael Jackson has converted to Islam and changed his name to Mikaeel.
The Sun.co.uk reports that Jackson, 50, was dressed in the Islamic garb as he pledged his allegiance to the Koran at a friend’s house in Los Angeles. He sat on the floor as an Imam was called to officiate the ceremony.
Jackson, who was raised a Jehovah’s Witness, decided to convert after discussing religion with a music producer and songwriter on his new album — both of them converts to Islam.
‘They began talking to him about their beliefs and how they thought they had become better people after they converted. Michael soon began warming to the idea. An Imam was summoned, and Michael went through the shahada, which is the Muslim declaration of belief,’ a source was quoted as saying.
Mikaeel is the name of one of Allah’s angels.

    He can convert to any religion he likes in America, but if a Muslim converts to Christianity or Buddhism, or other faiths, in Saudi Arabia, Somalia, and some other mainly Islamic nations, then this means death!

    Also, given the scandal that he was involved in, and the materialism of this person, it begs the question of why you are so proud of this?

    Also, the picture looks rather strange, with regards to all his make-up: so he doesn’t appear to be changing that much.

    Oh, in Saudi Arabia you can marry young children, just an interesting note! Of course, related to his secret past.
