So, you want to convert from Islam to Christianity?

Well then, you MUST be crazy!

At least, that is one of the "outs" being explored by Afghan prosecutors. Abdul Rahman, a former aid worker has commited a capital offense. He converted away from the "peaceful religion" of Islam and has offened God. Apparently, God cannot take care of Abdul Rahman Himself, so the Afghan justice system will act in His stead.

And even so-called moderates are crying for his execution. Abdul Raoulf has said that Mr. Rahman has humiliated God.

Can we get a refund from the Afghan people? Let's just send them a bill, take this man off their hands, as he is so offensive, and get our men and women out of harm's way. I am not one to rail against the sacrifices of our men and women in uniform or their families, far from it. However, I do flirt with the idea that their sacrifices have been for a bunch of ingrates.

Who are we kidding? This is a country whose longest period of stability was less than fifty years!

I just think that we cannot win. Really. I mean, for years, the criticism was our double standard-- insist of liberty when it suits us, but look the other way when it comes to our allies. I remember Afghan women appearing on Oprah years ago complaining that we, the US were not doing anything to stop the Taliban. Now, we are and it is intference.

I know I am speaking out of emotion and not logic, but right now logic has been trumped by anger, indignation, and sympathy. Feel free to drive trucks through the holes in my reasoing...
