Canada's Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, also dubbed ‘Canada’s
Obama’, announced he is converting from Christianity to Islam.
In a 13 minute press conference Friday, Trudeau explained
his decision in his life:
“After meeting thousands of new Syrian refugees, listening
to their stories and learning more about the Muslim faith, I have learned to
love Islam and the people of Islam. Islam promotes peace, not violence and is
in fact more peaceful that Christianity. I feel like this is the religion I
belong with and I should identify as,” reported the theglobalsun.com.
During the press conference, Trudeau dodged questions about
his wife, Sophie, and children converting. All the Prime Minister would say on
the subject is that they are very supportive of his decision, but were
unavailable for comment.
The Vatican Enquirer has learned that the couple are now
sleeping in separate beds, in separate rooms. At times even in separate homes.
