    Post Filmmaker Oliver Stone’s son converts to Islam

    US filmmaker Sean Stone, son of Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone, converted to Islam on Tuesday, February 14 in Iran, where he is making a documentary, AFP reported."The conversion to Islam is not abandoning Christianity or Judaism, which I was born with. It means I have accepted Mohammad and other prophets," he said in a brief telephone call from the central Iranian city of Isfahan, where he underwent the ceremony.
    Sean Stone's famous father is Jewish, while his mother is Christian.

    I imagine it would make making a documentary in Iran a lot easier.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    You might be right, he really is dedicated to his work, but i don't think the Iranian Government would suggest to a well known film maker(or at least his son) he has to convert in order to make a documentary. I'm sure they probably asked him not to paint Iran in a bad light though, especially these days. But Iran is a large country with thousands of years of famous well documented history, going back to the days of the Persian Empire. It has many different various landscapes, some of them breath takingly beautiful. Did you know that they are the only country outside of Africa to have their own subspecies of cheetah?1040_1920396797_custom.jpg_50862428_iranian_cheetahcapture101copylukehunter.jpg They live in the desert region.

    People convert to different religions every day.So I do not see how this is a big deal. Is he hoping that since he is a famous film maker's son that this would be similar to Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian releasing a sex tape or Chastity Bono pretending to be a man or some other Celeb's child doing someone outrageous or idiotic in order to mooch off their parent's success or fame?

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    When I inquired about filming a documentary in Australia, your government informed me that I must first convert to nonchalance.

    Or, ya know, he could have just wanted to say it.

    Don't believe their lies. They're just trying to get you to lower your immunity to spiritual toxins.
