If it is it doesn't matter

A point I have made is demonstrated

From this Friday's USA Today:
(This is a trial in Afghanistan of a man who converted from Islam to Christianity. The speaker is Judge Ansarullah Mawlavezada )

Afghanistan's constitution is based on Shariah law, which states that any Muslim who rejects their religion should be sentenced to death.

"We are not against any particular religion in the world. But in Afghanistan, this sort of thing is against the law," the judge said. "It is an attack on Islam. ... The prosecutor is asking for the death penalty."

The reference is
USA Todayhttp://www.usatoday.com/news/religion/2006-03-19-convert_x.htm

No other religion demands or has demanded this.

Hi, Steven, good to have you here.

Anonymous, while I allow anonymous postings, I'd appreciate it if you signed them with some sort of a name. I would argue that this is not a problem with the governments as much as commands mandated by religious teachings, but I hope to get some debate on this.
