Why Dave Chappelle Never Talks About Being Muslim... as told to Time Magazine...

"I don't normally talk about my religion publicly because I don't want people to associate me and my flaws with this beautiful thing. And I believe it is a beautiful religion if you learn it the right way. It's a lifelong effort. Your religion is your standard. - Chappelle

That explains why I never knew he converted. I was starting to lump it in with other famous conversions, like Michael Jackson, Neil Armstrong, and Jacques Costeau.

OK, Mansoor are you telling me Michael Jackson is a Muslim? I like the way David Chapelle put it though. You dont' want your character to be attacked just b/c you believe in some idea. But who is David Chapelle? Mansoor NA and JC are Muslim?

I think what Mansoor meant was "famous convertions" with quotation marks because Mike Jackson was rumored to be Muslim but ofcourse HE never confirmed it. So it seemed with the Dave Chapelle rumors. Dave Chapelle is a comedian. He has his own showon Comedy Central.

Saadia, drop everything and rent "Half Baked". If you like marijuana humor (and who doesn't?), you'll love it.

Dave Chappelle has gone underground for the moment. He went to Africa and no one's heard from him for a month. He might pull a Cat Stevens, and return with a beard, a kufi, and a set of clean Muslim jokes.
