Jennifer, you question; "why is conversion out of Islam punishable by death?

Indeed, why does so much of the Muslim world restrict freedom in so many forms; has a very simple answer. Anyone who has read the Qur'an and the Hadiths should be able to answer you. Here are some ayas from the "Glorious Qur'an":

Sura(S) means chapter and aya(a) means verse.
(S)2(a)89 But the curse of Allah is on those without faith(in Islam).
(S)2(a)191 And slay them who do not accept Allah wherever you catch them.
(S)2(a)216 Fighting is prescribed for you even if you dislike it.
(S)3(a)28 Let the believers not take for friends who are unbelievers.
(S)3(a)85 If anyone desires a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted from him.
(S)3(a)151 Soon we will put fear into the hearts of unbelievers.
(S)4(a)76 Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah.
(S)4(a)89 But if they become those who deny (faith), catch them and kill them wherever you find them.
(S)7(a)4 And how many towns have we destroyed (for the sins of their people). Our punishment took them all of a sudden by night or during their sleep.
(S)8(a)12 I will bring terror into the hearts of the disbelievers: So you strike them above their necks and hit hard over all their finger tips and toes.
(S)8(a)17 It was not you who killed them: it was Allah Who killed them.
There are many more ayas that recommend violence and death against those who do not convert or accept the great religion of Islam.
