What the huh?


Afghan Abdul Rahman was charged with having converted from Islam to Christianity. He faced the death penalty. He refused to renounce his faith in Jesus. He openly confessed to an unshakable faith, even though he knew that that meant that he may have to face death.

His case was dismissed due to a lack of evidence.

It's a CYA for the government. They faced an international shit storm if they executed the guy. Releasing him from jail will have the same end result, he'll probably be dead within a week, but their hands will be clean.
