Beliefnet
Islam In America

Here we go again. Yet another idiotic decision by a court that causes Americans to consider Islam a barbaric religion.

How can it be possible in the 21st Century that a personal belief merits the death penalty in a country that officially recognizes freedom of religion?

Sure, as it’s reported in the Huffington Post, “Sudan’s penal code criminalizes the conversion of Muslims into other religions, which is punishable by death.”

And, yes, Roman Catholic Christians used to burn heretics and non-believers at the stake — but that was centuries ago.

The world has learned from its mistakes and moved on — so should countries such as Sudan if they wish to be taken seriously in the modern era.
