A Happy Ending



The story here.

The Afghani who was charged with converting to Christianity and faced the death penalty has been given asylum by Italy.

Did he choose to seek asylum in Italy rather than the US, becuase it's a crime to be a Christian here, too?

Good one, Madeline! So true!

I used this story as a lesson to my son, who is studying U.S. history, freedom, our rights, etc. to show him how hard other people have it in other countries. So sad.

The difference between Catholics and Muslims: Muslims kill their apostates, Catholics elect theirs to Congress.
