Afghan man to be sentenced for converting to Christianity

Just read on the globe about an afghani man who renounced Islam and converted to Christianity. A judge in Afghanistan has to decide whether the man should be hung, as it is illegal according to Islam to be Christian.

I cannot imagine what this man is going through as he sits in jail, waiting to find out if he will be sentenced to death for coming to Christ. I personally find it scary that even in this new Afghanistan with a constitution embracing the universal declaration of human rights, that a person should suffer for converting to Christianity. This certainly brings up many issues of freedom of religion. I pray that Mr. Rahman never loses faith, and that this issue comes to peaceful resolution.God_
