    Oliver Stone's son converts to Islam in Iran

    US filmmaker Sean Stone, son of Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone, converted to Islam on Tuesday in Iran, where he is making a documentary, he told AFP.

    "The conversion to Islam is not abandoning Christianity or Judaism, which I was born with. It means I have accepted Mohammad and other prophets," he said in a brief telephone call from the central Iranian city of Isfahan, where he underwent the ceremony.

    Sean Stone's famous father is Jewish, while his mother is Christian.

    The 27-year-old filmmaker did not say why he converted.

    According to Iran's Fars news agency, Sean Stone had become a Shiite and had chosen to be known by the Muslim first name Ali.

    Sean/Ali Stone has acted in minor roles in several of his father's films, and has directed a handful of documentaries.

    So he can beat his women, molest his children, abuse farm animals and get 72 virgins after committing a mass murder.

    What other reason is there?

    Either it's only 33% of the human race or there aren't 6 billion people on the planet.
