Anger over Christian convert in Kabul who faces death

We've brought true freedom to Afghanistan by ridding it of the Taliban. When the Taliban was in power, a man who converted to Christianity from Islam would have been executed immediately, now, after us Americans have lended a hand, he'll have a trial first and then he'll be executed.

Abdul Rahman, a 41-year-old Afghan, was a Muslim for 25 years before he began working for an international Christian group helping his fellow countrymen in Pakistan. Within a couple of years he had converted to Christianity.

Those Christians are good man. They get in your head like catchy commericals. If you can convert a middle-eastern Muslim you can convert anybody.

Fourteen years later, the decision may cost him his life.


After four years in Peshawar Mr Rahman spent the next nine in Germany. His problems began when he returned to Afghanistan in 2002 and tried to recover his two daughters, now aged 13 and 14, who were living with his parents in Kabul.

Leave the kids Rahman...take the canolis.

His parents refused to return them.

They'll never live in a home that doesn't worship Mohammed...and isn't made of dried dirt.

The matter went to the police, with the parents complaining that their son had become violent. Mr Rahman’s father then denounced him as a convert. Mr Rahman was promptly arrested, and found to possess a Bible. He now languishes in Kabul central prison and will, if convicted of an “attack on Islam”, face the death penalty under Afghanistan’s new constitution.

I'm so glad we have brought freedom to Afghanistan. This is kind of like teaching kids with down syndrome to play the concert piano. It ain't happening. Middle-easterners have violence in their DNA, there's no changing that. You give them freedom and a constitution and they make an ammedment allowing beheadings on Saturdays. What's the solution then. How the fuck am I supposed to know? I'm just here to point fingers.
