wow, you used to be Muslim? Care to post a conversion story???
Sure, although it's not terribly exciting. Basically, I was raised Catholic by fairly devout parents, but early on rejected it, I think now because the church we went to was V2 all the way, hand-holding, accordion-playing nonsense. To me it was just silly. So for most of my adolescent years I was an atheist neopagan, but the summer before my senior year of high school I read the Qur'an, though "cool", and decided to convert. I was only Muslim for a year, and think of it as shock therapy getting me back into the habit of worshipping God, but when I went off to uni I pretty much ditched it, mainly because of its fundamentalistish features - it, or at least the non-Sufi variants, have very little depth of theology. So I meandered along for a while, attending a local Tridentine mass, until an Orthodox friend of mine took me to a divine liturgy, and from there I was hooked.
