jennifer soils: Old Testament encourages killing an apostate. Did you ever condemn that?

Reader comment on item: Insight into Obama's Middle East Policy?
in response to reader comment: What about researching what you're being "invited" to?

If you read your Old Testament, it says clearly: If anyone comes to you and proclaims a god other than the God, then KILL HIM !! Quran is an extension of Old and New Testament. The word of God stays the same. And that is NOT to say that I am condoning Death for an apostate, as this is NOT my job to decide and implement. And by the way, I NEVER said what you accused me of, below: "Regarding the killing of the "infidel", you've already in previous posts stated this is permissible only in defense of one's self"
