Apostasy is equivalent to treason

Reader comment on item: Counting Islamists
in response to reader comment: who says if Bashir is right or wrong - who is the arbiter of a person's truth????

Apostasy laws are equivalent with our treason laws. Treason is a capital offense in the U.S. Apostasy is treason in Islamic countries. Also, the punishments are rarely carried out in the U.S. as well as in Islamic countries.

I see the similarities with Islam and the west because the west took from Islam as much as Islam took from the west. Islam is easy my friend. It may look hard to you but trust me, it is easy. With God's help anything is easy.

There are a lot of Sunnah traditions that your friends were sharing with you. Those are not mandatory. God willing, I plan to go to Saudi Arabia someday. I can't wait.

may God guide you,

peace
