    from today's Boston Globe:


    March 19, 2006

    KABUL, 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 Associated Press in an interview. Such a conversion would violate the country's Islamic laws.

    Rahman, who is believed to be 41, was charged with rejecting Islam when his trial started last week, the judge said.

    During the hearing, the defendant allegedly confessed that he converted from Islam to Christianity 16 years ago when he was 25 and working as a medical aid worker for Afghan refugees in neighboring Pakistan, Mawlavezada said.

    Afghanistan's constitution is based on Shariah law, which states that any Muslim who rejects their religion should be sentenced to death.

    "We are not against any particular religion in the world. But in Afghanistan, this sort of thing is against the law," the judge said. "It is an attack on Islam. ... The prosecutor is asking for the death penalty."

    The prosecutor, Abdul Wasi, said the case was the first of its kind in Afghanistan.

    He said that he had offered to drop the charges if Rahman changed his religion back to Islam, but the defendant refused.

    Mawlavezada said he would rule on the case within two months.

    Afghanistan is a deeply conservative society and 99 percent of its 28 million people are Muslim. The rest are mainly Hindus.

    So what you're saying is that the basis of the Islamic religion is absolutley fucking retarded? Because that's what I think you're saying...

    And if you are saying that it is indeed retarded... is it ok for us to kill the ones who subscribe to such laws?

    There is no "regime" in Afghanistan... Shria is what the fuckheads wanted there so they got it. But don't worry, Islam is a religion of peace and justice so all that shit will probably workout (by that guy being killed).

    im sure he knew what the fuck he was risking by converting and remaining there, he even refused to save his own life by going back to Islam, he has balls.

    a great deal of the people in that area are fucked up. however in its defense, it is the one of the oldest and untainted places on earth, so maybe im fucked up.

    thats the part I can't understand. He must be trying to go out all heroic or something. He knew the law, if he wanted to be a christian he shouldve just went to america or europe where you can be a homosexual christian athiest sex education teacher & animated child porn website developing alcholic pillpoppin emo raver transexual ex convict nun.
    Not afghanistan where you KNOW the law is death for apostasy.

    no, I'm just saying, It's possible that he didn't know he was going to be turned in and then charged with a crime and faced with death over it, but if I was (lets say) still a teenager living at home with my parents racking paint to go out a night and destroy personal property I definately wouldn't come home and tell my parents about it.
    now, at 17 years old , I might have thought racking paint and destroying peoples property every day was a perfectly normal and productive lifestyle because...I did! And most of the people on this board think so too, but I wonder what their parents think about graff.
    To a graff writer, It's what's up...all day every day, but to most people, they hate graffiti. To them it's a crime to us it's art, so again, my point is, it's all a matter of perception. You may not like their rules, then don't live in Afghanistan. People all over the world hate America, it's values, what it stands for etc. and some people will die for America. Both parties have their right to likes and dislikes. All I'm saying is don't be stupid...people love to jump in the middle of a wolf pack and then cry wolf. You don't have to agree with their laws , but they have a right to set them as they see fit and according to what they beleive.
