I’ve been observing lent during March. Thankfully, I can do so free from reprisals in this country. People who choose not to observe lent are also free from reprisals.
Meanwhile, a Christian in Afghanistan is not so blessed. Abdul Rhaman, who has admitted to converting to Christianity, is facing the death penalty for being a traitor to Islam.Â His own family turned him in. The Middle East times has a photo of the most damaging evidence against him – his bible.
So Islam once again demonstrates it is not the religion of peace, but is the religion of intimidation and fear.
