American converts to Islam...

...are Cafeteria Muslims. Example from a 2007 episode of Inside Edition here. A couple of things that I found a little nauseating: 1) the comment, "But things haven't been easy for Muslims in this country since 9/11." [N.B.: things are actually much easier here for them than in Muslim countries--Angela ought to try life in Saudi Arabia for a while]; 2) her parents. Her dad's comment that he "wasn't surprised" just shows me how very "Catholic" they were, despite the charming photo of the girls in their Catholic school uniforms.
