Values Voter Summit Features Fake Ex-Jihadi

Wingnuts • Views: 1,340

Here’s another thread to discuss the fundamentalist convention called the Values Voter Summit, as fake ex-jihadi Ergun Caner takes the stage:

Some background information on Ergun Caner:

Caner has said that he was born in Sweden and raised as a devout Sunni Muslim in Turkey before converting to Christianity, after he moved to Ohio in 1968. In a November 2001 sermon at First Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida, he said that “Until I was 15 years old, I was in the Islamic youth jihad.” In the same sermon, he said that “I was trained to do that which was done on 11 September, as were thousands of youth.” He also co-wrote a book with his younger brother Unveiling Islam: An Insider’s Look at Muslim Life and Beliefs which said that his parents wed in Sweden and the family moved to Ohio when Caner was young. The divorce records of Caner’s parents show that his family moved to Ohio when he was 3 or 4, contradicting Caner’s claim of living as a teenager in Turkey. Caner has co-authored several books with his brother Emir, president of Truett-McConnell College, a Baptist school in Cleveland, Georgia.

After bloggers began to post about discrepancies in his statements, in April 2010, Caner and others removed audio and video recordings of him on the internet that were being cited to support the claims against him, and made changes to his personal website. In one particular video, Caner appears not to be familiar with the basic testimonies of faith that anyone raised Muslim would know.
