Kidnapped Fox News crew freed after forced “conversion” to Islam

Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig are finally free:

Centanni, in a phone interview shortly after his release, said “I’m fine. I’m just so happy to be free.”
He said he was so emotional because he was out and alive.
“There were times when I thought ‘I’m dead,’ and I’m not,” Centanni said. “I’m fine. I’m so very happy.”

Both of the men were forced to convert to Islam at gunpoint, Centanni said.
“We were forced to convert to Islam at gunpoint,” Centanni told FOX News. “Don’t get me wrong here. I have the highest respect for Islam, and I learned a lot of good things about it, but it was something we felt we had to do because they had the guns, and we didn’t know what the hell was going on.”

Surely Centanni and Wiig don’t consider themselves to be Muslims now. Do they?

    I guess if you convert to Islam, you swear allegiance to Allah. If you don’t believe in Allah, the oath wouldn’t mean a lot, huh?
