Inter-Faith Dialogue, 12th Century Style.

An Afghan is to be hanged for converting to Christianity:
An Afghan physiotherapist will be executed within three days for converting to Christianity.

Said Musa, 45, has been held for eight months in a Kabul prison were he claims he has been tortured and sexually abused by inmates and guards.

Mr Musa, who lost his left leg in a landmine explosion in the 1990s, has worked for the Red Cross for 15 years and helps to treat fellow amputees.

He was arrested in May last year as he attempted to seek asylum at the German embassy following a crackdown on Christians within Afghanistan.
(Emphasis mine)
You have wonder why this isn't front page news, and why some human rights group isn't making all sorts of ruckus over government-sanctioned religious persecution. Especially since Westerners, many of them Christians, are footing most of the bill for that government. Could it be because the victims are...


If Mr. Musa was smart, he would also claim to be gay. The Episcopal Church (tm) would fall over it's croziers to ride to his rescue. But, he actually believes in all that Christianist / Jesusland mumbo-jumbo and is willing to die for his Faith (how quaint), so no one is going to get too upset when he actually does die.

Well, some of us will.

Like you said, genocide of Christians isn't very newsworthy to the mainstream.
For those of us who actually do care, the escalation in violence towards Christians is not only alarming, but heart-breaking.
