Christian Right's Favorite Muslim Convert Exposed as Jihadi Fraud

"Ergun Caner's rise to the top of conservative evangelical celebrity -- and to the presidency of the Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary founded by the late Rev. Jerry Falwell -- was fueled by how aggressively he capitalized on the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, to portray himself as a personal example of the power of Jesus to save even someone raised as a jihadist, which he claimed to be. There's only one problem with that part of Caner's story: it appears not to be true." (thanks Molly)
