An Iranian Christian pastor has been sentenced to death for refusing to convert to Islam.
Kudos to the Obama administration for publicly condemning the Iranian government for their violation of freedom of religion!
Giving the death penalty to Muslims who convert to other religions has gone on since the time of Muhammad. Muhammad himself personally ordered the execution of some who had turned back from his new religion of Islam. The difference in the Iranian case is that this pastor has never been Muslim! The Iranian supreme court is demanding that the pastor "return" to the religion of his "ancestors."
Islam is so intellectually weak and indefensible that the only way it can maintain its large numbers is by threats, intimidation and violence. Muslims who deny this should start a worldwide movement to allow true freedom of religion in Islam by removing all penalties, intimidations, and consequences for converting away from Islam.
