Free to be crazy, crazy to be free...

There has been an outcome of sorts for the man who was on trial for his life for converting to Christianity. It seems that the Afghans read my blog and decided not to follow their foolish notion of executing this man, and released him, saying he's just nuts, not a blasphemer:
    Deputy Attorney-General Mohammed Eshak Aloko said prosecutors had issued a letter calling for Rahman’s release because “he was mentally unfit to stand trial.” He also said he did not know where Rahman had gone after being released.
Chicken-shit, but effective. The man has apparently disappeared from Afghanistan, probably because a lot of stupid fundaterrorists-in-training are bent on murder. Is that crazy?
    On Monday, hundreds of clerics, students and others chanting "Death to Christians!" marched through the northern Afghan city of Mazar-e-Sharif to protest the court decision Sunday to dismiss the case. Several Muslim clerics threatened to incite Afghans to kill Rahman if he is freed, saying that he is clearly guilty of apostasy and deserves to die.

    "Abdul Rahman must be killed. Islam demands it," said senior Cleric Faiez Mohammed, from the nearby northern city of Kunduz. "The Christian foreigners occupying Afghanistan are attacking our religion."
Sometimes I just get tired of reading these cowardly remarks. If by some chance some fool decides to heed this advice and tracks down Rahman, I should hope they string up this Cleric.

Hm.. funny how they don't seem to have a problem accepting humanitarian aide from Christians. Those kooky fundies!
