A young British Muslim has explained why she decided to ditch Christianity for Islam during an extremely compelling interview.
Speaking to Iain Dale, Dionne said she had been brought up as a Christian, but soon found herself searching for something with more “integrity”.
The LBC caller said Christians “did not know their bible” and would “interpret things how ever they wanted to” - something she claims is not possible with Islam.
She said: “With the Quran you can’t do that, you have to take every word literally.
“There is no modernising of the Quran… there is no modernising with this religion”.
Iain challenged Dionne, as he argued it was reasonable to have a “flexible interpretation” of the religious book in a modernised world.
He added: “Society changes, doesn’t it?”
"It does, but does that mean truth has to change,” the caller responded as she instantly rejected Iain’s argument.
Dionne continued: “Just because it sounds good to say that ‘surely it has to adapt to a modern age’ it doesn’t mean to say that’s factually true.”
