Gordon in the morning: Trouble with the conversion

Gordon Smart has astonishing news of a prison conversion:

Doherty turns to Islam in jail


Erm, no: it turns out he's filling in some of his time in jail reading the Qur'an - which isn't quite the same thing as "turning to Islam". Doubtless if he'd picked up a copy of Death On The Nile, Gordon would have reported him as having turned to murder.

It's only a few weeks since Smart was claiming that Doherty had become a Scientologist, wasn't it?

But - let's pretend he's converting, shall we - isn't the point about adopting a new religion that you usually do so because you feel you've been living your life in the wrong fashion? Aren't all religions usually expecting new recruits to have a lot of weakness and sin to offset? Otherwise it wouldn't be that difficult, would it?
