It appears Muslims are all liars, every one; just as I said!
Based on the linked report in The Christian Post my words here were prophetic.Egypt’s top religious advisor attempted Thursday to clear up controversy that had been building up this past week over his reported statement that Muslims are free to convert to other faiths.A "grave" sin is one where you end up in one, if you convert! Sort of like the warning about falls; it's not the fall that kills, it's the sudden stop!
Grand Mufti Ali Gomaa, one of the most respected Islamic scholars in the world today, re-affirmed that Muslims have the freedom to convert to another religion, but that it would be a “grave sin.”
“Choice means freedom, and freedom includes the freedom to commit grave sins as long as their harm does not extend to others,” said Gomaa, according to Agence France-Presse.
The controversy began Tuesday when local media picked up a statement Gomaa had made earlier in a Washington Post-Newsweek forum on Islam.
What's that old saw? "Oh what webs we weave, when we first deceive!" Un-huh????Following the frenzy over his statement, different media outlets had given conflicting stories on the grand mufti’s opinion on conversions by Muslims.Gomaa is spinning out of control from here on in; read it for yourself. Bottom-line: you convert and you're dead meat! But then that's Islamic freedom Gomaa goes on to say.
Some local press interpreted his remark to mean he did not mind if Muslims converted to another faith, which led Gomaa to make another statement Tuesday that condemned apostasy and appeared to contradict his Washington Post statement.
