Shot #1 - To each his own.

EDIT: Although I would challenge that he is a true convert because of this statement...


"The conversion to Islam is not abandoning Christianity or Judaism, which I was born with," Stone told Fars News Agency. "It means I have accepted Mohammad and other prophets."



Sounds more to me like he converted for sensationalism/shock effect/to get his name in the news.

I don't know if that would make him a muslim in the traditional sense but do your thing. There was an article a few years ago about a woman who was a christian minister who converted to islam at the same time while still maintaining her christanity. I'm not sure how one can pull off following two religions with different sticking points but hey more power to her.
