Send In The Lions

I thought we got rid of the Taliban in the Afghan government. I guess not:

Christian Charged For Switch From Islam

My favorite contradictory quote:
"We are not against any particular religion in the world. But in Afghanistan, this sort of thing is against the law," the judge said.
And from the prosecutor:
"He would have been forgiven if he changed back. But he said he was a Christian and would always remain one," [Abdul] Wasi said. "We are Muslims, and becoming a Christian is against our laws. He must get the death penalty."
It's getting much harder for me to believe Islam is a religion of peace with characters like these around. I'll say it again: moderate Muslims need to start taking their faith back.
