Quote:
Italy's most prominent Muslim commentator is converting to Catholicism by being baptized by the pope at an Easter vigil, the Vatican announced Saturday.

Magdi Allam is the deputy editor of the Corriere della Sera newspaper and writes often on Muslim and Arab affairs. Born in Egypt, he has described himself as a non-practicing Muslim. He has long spoken out against extremism and in favor of tolerance.


Good Easter news indeed.

Apostasy is still a crime punishable by death in the near vicinity of Italy. Hopefully, it is old age that gets the guy, and not one of the extremists he speaks out against.
