Sharia Law rears its ugly head

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: Adib Farakish.. they themselves are not sure about their religion

In the news TODAY (you can probably google it) a 41 year old man with the last name of Rahman in Afghanistan is going to be put to death because he converted from Islam to Christianity. He has been a Christian for 16 years but kept it quiet. The Court gave him the option to switch back and they would spare his life, but he declined. This sentence is directly from the Qu'ran according to Sharia law. No wonder there is such intolerance from Muslims, when the law is just as intolerant.
