Jettisoning Belief

A reader writes:

It's interesting that when you quoted Romney saying:

Americans tire of those who would jettison their beliefs, even to gain the world.

my immediate reaction was to think of those ex-Muslims who have "jettisoned their beliefs" despite the threat of violence or death. Most people I know seem to admire them, not tire of them.

And they chose the world's doubts over Allah's certainty, didn't they?
