Oliver Stone's Son Converts to Islam and is now a Shiite

The son of Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone converted to Islam while making a documentary film in Iran, Agence France Press reports.


"The conversion to Islam is not abandoning Christianity or Judaism, which I was born with. It means I have accepted Muhammad and other prophets," he said from the Iranian city of Isfahan, where he reportedly underwent his conversion ceremony.
Iran's Fars news reports that Stone became a Shiite and chose the Muslim first name Ali.
Stone's director father is Jewish, and his mother is Christian.
Stone, 27, has directed several documentaries and had bit parts in his father's films, AFP reports.

I guess Stone's son like the idea of stoning his wife if she disrespects him, or killing his daughter if she dressed the wrong way.

Shia Islam (Arabic: شيعة‎, Shīʿah) is the second largest denomination of Islam. The followers of Shia Islam are called Shi'ites or Shias. "Shia" is the short form of the historic phrase Shīʻatu ʻAlī (شيعة علي), meaning "followers of Ali", "faction of Ali", or "party of Ali".

I don't know if I sould respond about this idiot or not. I think I will pass since it is too moronical to even comment about.

Is that me being a butthole or just me being indifferent?
