Muslim-to-Christian Convert and Liberty University Leader is Full of Lies

Ergun Caner has the perfect story for fundies and professional haters of Islam.  Problem is, his story has holes...lots of them.  He grew up in Ohio...Oturkio?  He was taught militant he wasn't...yes he was...?  He has debated other scholars...except he hasn't... He doesn't even appear to be honest about his middle name, which is "Michael" on official documents, but "Mehment" on his self-promoting literature. 

Now Liberty is investigating him. In a nutshell:
Despite his claims about having lived in Turkey, it now appears that Caner was born in Sweden and moved to Ohio when he was 4 years old. His father was a Muslim, but his mother was Lutheran. The couple divorced, and Caner’s mother retained custody. He became an evangelical Christian as a teen; it’s unlike he was ever recruited by jihadists.
There's a sucker born every minute, and more often in Lynchburg and the Islamophobe racket.
