What Happened to Religious Freedom?

I don’t think this is what America had in mind when we liberated Afghanistan:

An Afghan man who allegedly converted from Islam to Christianity is being prosecuted in a Kabul court and could be sentenced to death, a judge said Sunday.

The defendant, Abdul Rahman, was arrested last month after his family went to the police and accused him of becoming a Christian, Judge Ansarullah Mawlavezada told the Associated Press in an interview. Such a conversion would violate the country’s Islamic laws.

Prosecuter Abdul Wasi offered to drop the charges if Rahman converted back to Islam, but Rahman refused. President Karazi needs to step in – fast.

Via Impossible Scissors

UPDATE: I caught part of Bush’s speech today, and he mentioned this incident. This is promising.
