NOVANEWSQuantcast

A different faith: Liam Neeson, pictured here on the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon Show this month, is reportedly considering converting to Islam

He may have been named after the local priest in his Irish hometown but Liam Neeson could be leaving his Roman Catholic beliefs behind.

The 59-year-old actor is said to be considering converting to Islam following a working trip to Istanbul.

According to The Sun, Neeson admitted that Islamic prayer ‘got into his spirit’ while he was filming in Turkey.

‘The call to prayer happens five times a day, and for the first week, it drives you crazy, and then it just gets into your spirit, and it’s the most beautiful, beautiful thing,’ he said.

‘There are 4,000 mosques in the city. Some are just stunning, and it really makes me think about becoming a Muslim.’

Neeson was raised in Northern Ireland as a devout Roman Catholic due to his parents beliefs.

 However, the Taken star has recently spoken about his opinion towards religion.

‘I was reared a Catholic, but I think every day we ask ourselves, not consciously, what are we doing on this planet? What’s it all about?’ he said.

‘I’m constantly reading books on God or the absence of God and atheism.’

The actor was criticised in 2010 after claiming The Chronicles Of Narnia lion, Aslan, who he provided the voice for in the film, was not based on Christ as CS Lewis had claimed but in fact all spiritual leaders including Mohammed.

Neeson’s latest film The Grey will be released in the UK this Friday.

    Thank you Liam Neeson. What a beautiful man.

    I think about Liam Neeson often ever since the murder of his wife Natasha Richardson. Natasha, like her mother Vanessa Redgrave were outspoken in their support of Palestine. She was scheduled to make a speech about that support two weeks after her death. Hollywood and its zionist monsters couldn’t handle that kind of threat.

    God Bless you Natasha Richardson. God Bless your beautiful Spirit.

    Ireland lost the Catholic faith a long time ago. As a matter of fact, so did Rome (circa 1965 at the conclusion of the Vatican II council).

    This isn’t surprising that is heart is still seeking God. Pray for him.

    MashaAllah. May the One Creator guide him to worship Him and Him without partner. He still will get the benefit of revering Jesus too!

    Hmmm, Lets hope he don’t decide he wants to hang gay people or abuse women in the name of the Qur’an. Sorry as a gay man I don’t for one second trust Muslims. Not that one can trust to many supposed Christians either. They would gladly see Gay people genocide for their sadistic pleasure. How anyone could kill gays or honor kill their own family in the name of God is beyond me. It’s why I turned away from religion. The religious zealot freaks scare me. They are all a bunch of bat crazy arse murderers.
