    Default Christian convert to be executed in Afghanistan

    Sorry if there is another thread on this....didn't see one.

    News Link


    KABUL (Reuters) - Growing international pressure on Afghanistan to respect the religious freedom of a Christian convert was met in Afghanistan on Friday by a clamor of calls for the man to be executed for denying Islam.

    The controversy over 40-year-old Abdur Rahman, whose trial is due to begin next week, threatens to drive a wedge between Afghanistan and Western countries that are ensuring its security and bankrolling its development.

    But President Hamid Karzai cannot ignore the views of conservative proponents of Islamic law or appear to bow too readily to outside pressure.

    The United States wants Afghanistan to show that it respects religious freedom and quickly resolve the case. President George W. Bush has vowed to use U.S. leverage over Afghanistan.
    I cannot help but wonder if there would be such an action by Bush had this man turned to any other religion than Christianity.

    If the man wants to convert to Christianity, then let him. Jeez.

    On the other topic you raised, had this guy wanted to convert to Wicca or denounce God all together, I seriously doubt Bush would have raised an eyebrow in protest.

    If he does get executed, he will be a martyr in some peoples' eyes.
