Right, I heard about this but it's nothing definite. This guy is a real seedy character and there's really no way of knowing if he's sincere.

But aside from that, it's amazing to think that just about 29 years ago---a muslim man attempted to kill the pope at the Vatican. Imagine if that were to happen today--what an event. It would be the equivalent of a non-muslim trying to kill a caliph (if there was such a person). But just think of the ramifications.

And getting back to the converts from islam.
This is just a small list of people and names that are publicly known.
How about the usual common not so well known people ?..and those who are silently doing it ?
They could be in millions.!!
There's a very large persian community here in the US. They mostly live in LA and from what I hear, more and more of them actually practice christianity rather than shia islam. And you're right....there could be millions more but islam won't let them leave lest they be killed. It's like someone trying to escape East Germany.

This is a totally awesome thread!

I doubt there are many from Islam to Judaism. I think there are large numbers of Islam to Zoroastrianism because there are mass conversion ceremonies in Scandinavia a couple times a year.

The point is clear.
even with all this threats in this life and warnings of catastrophic punishments
in the after life..Muslims are leaving the faith and taking up another.

Hence moving away from Judaism to Christian or vie versa is not
significant. Of for that matter from Christian to Buddhist or Agnostic etc.
These are choices allowed and permitted as free will in these religions.

Moving away from Islam to another is significant.

As I hinted above, these sort of reports by Atheists that muslims are leaving Islam are nothing but disinformation.

Its desperate propaganda.

American TV Networks like CNN, NBC, FOX, and others, all bring on their shows Americans and Canadians who convert to Islam. According to news reports there are thousand of people who became muslim every year.

See this thread: viewtopic.php?f=33&t=3276" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Yet these same TV channels have not managed to put on TV just ten people who left Islam to become Atheists.

I wonder why?

That should make you think about how many people must have abandoned the Koran.

The major TV networks do show people who convert from Islam to other religion.
Eg: If there is some political news significance.
Example the son of Hamas leader who converted to Christian last year.

But these large nteworks like CNN and BBC etc have other much more important world news to cover
than repeat telecast some ordinary religious conversions news every day.
They got better and more important things to do.

It is a sheer waste of time explaining all this to a TROLL here like you.
The readers here have enough sense and intelligence to make their own objective opinions.

You are living proof that evolution CAN go in reverse.
Calling you stupid would be an insult to stupid people.

The point to note here is that not many are as brave as Father Zakaria Boutros. While converts to Islam (especially in Islamic countries) are accorded red carpets, given exclusive prime-time interviews on TV, given special rights and treatements and treated to various functions, muslim apostates just want to be left alone. Those who dare come forward, and I really salute them for their conviction, already make colorful list. It is sure death for them to be out in public.
