Catholic Bishop Says Many Conversions of Moslems to Christianity in Lebanon

Posted By Brian Kelly On February 14, 2014

EWTNews: According to a local bishop, numerous conversions of Muslims to Christianity occur every year in Lebanon but the true number is unknown because of the risk of social stigma and persecution.

“Most of them try to go outside from Lebanon, to Europe or America or Canada or Australia to live there, because it’s not possible to be converted and to stay here,” a Catholic bishop in Lebanon told EWTN News in a Feb. 10 phone interview.

“It’s very, very hard to know how many are baptized, because everything will be a secret.” Read full report here [1].

    Why bother? Don’t we all worship the same God? Oh, we need to let go of that “unhealthy” clinging to “outdated” doctrine.

    COME ON, GET HAPPY!!!!

  2. St. Francis says:

    What kind of “Christianity” are these people converting to? The only true Christianity is Catholicism. So I hope that they are converting to Catholicism ( the Maronite Church ) and that’s what the bishop meant.

  3. St. Elmo says:

    The risk of conversion for a Muslim isn’t “social stigma” it’s murder at the hands of a Muslim neighbor who, as His Humbleness recommends, believes what the Koran teaches, which is a death sentence for apostates. May God bless and protect all converts from Islam.
