OJ Simpson's decided to convert to Islam

As if it couldn't be any harder for me to watch the films and TV programs he's appeared in without feeling depressed, now he intends to make it nigh impossible:
O.J. Simpson wants to convert to Islam — if he can get through the holy month of Ramadan.

Ramadan is the fourth of the five pillars of Islam, and requires Muslims to fast during the hours of daylight. And as any recent photo will attest, food is a big, big part of Simpson’s daily life.

According to the National Enquirer, a source said Simpson sometimes wears the traditional Kufi prayer cap and studies the Koran, but failed to fast during Ramadan.

[...] The Enquirer reported that Simpson became interested in Islam through former world heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson, who converted to Islam while serving time in prison for rape.
And upon his release, Tyson made the situation even worse by biting off the ear of Evander Holyfield. One can only wonder what Simpson, if he's ever released from prison, will do after converting. This was a man who murdered his ex-wife and her boyfriend in 1994, and never paid properly for it. And who effectively embarrassed his screen performances. Now he's made things worse by converting, in his words, to find redemption for his deeds, but in reality, as a justification for them. A pure disgrace.

This is not surprising. In Islam, it is plenty okay to murder your wife if she takes up with other men. I agree, O.J. does not seek redemption, but justification. What a pathetic loser.
