Afghan Christian

Of all the sad, stupid things that have been said in the controversy over the Afghan Christian convert, the most unintentionally revealing quote, I think, was this one:

But at Hossainia Mosque, one of the largest Shiite places of worship in Kabul, Said Mirhossain Nasri said Rahman must be barred from leaving the country.

"If he is allowed to live in the West, then others will claim to be Christian so they can, too," he said. "He must be hanged."

Yep. That sort of says it all about the current state of the Islamic world.
