Islamic lawyers urge death sentence for Christian convert
In the latest hearing of a Muslim-born Egyptian‚Äôs effort to officially convert to Christianity, opposing lawyers advocated he be convicted of ‚Äúapostasy,‚ÄĚ or leaving Islam, and sentenced to death.
More than 20 Islamic lawyers attended the hearing on Sunday (Feb. 22) in Maher Ahmad El-Mo‚Äôotahssem Bellah El-Gohary‚Äôs case to obtain identification papers with Christianity designated as his religious affiliation. Two lawyers led the charge, Ahmed Dia El-Din and Abdel Al-Migid El-Anani.
‚Äú[El-Din] started to talk about the Quran being in a higher position than the Bible,‚ÄĚ one of El-Gohary‚Äôs lawyers, Said Fayez, told Compass. ‚Äú[El-Din said] people can move to a higher religion but not down, so people cannot move away from Islam because it is highest in rank.‚ÄĚ...
And yet people continue to claim that Islam is a peaceful religion? Seems to me that this "peaceful religion" has left a lot of bodies in its wake. If someone wants to continue to follow Islam then by all means they should have the right to do so. But if for whatever reason that person changes his or her mind and wants to take a different path then said person should be able to do so without fear of their lives.
Three years ago I was baptised with two others, one of whom was a convert from Islam. This is in England... he was told that if he converted he would lose his job, and his home. He was physically threatened by his work mates (he worked on a building site) and I believe had real reason to fear persecution.
He got baptised anyway. Any time I feel the world pressuring me to not be so forthright in my faith, I remember this man.
We should pray for our brothers and sisters from Muslim backgrounds... We need to be honest about what they are facing, and we can all learn from their courageous example.
Islamic lawyers urge death sentence for Christian convert ???
By now everyone has seen the article here on SermonAudio --- [URL=http://www.sermonaudio.com/new_details.asp?ID=27038]]]"Newsweek: Learning to Live With Radical Islam"[/URL]
If anyone has entertained the notion that there can be any compromise with "Radical Islam" this artical (on this thread) should be a testament as to the TRUTH that is at the heart of their manipulative doctrine of death !!!
The Quran is a book of deceit and lies, and it holds nothing but bondage and death for those who are callow enough to be fooled by its odious content !!!
Ah, another example of the [URL=http://www.answering-islam.org/Books/Barton/11.htm]]]Inadequacy of Islam[/URL], one can see the inadequacy of the [URL=http://www.answering-islam.org/Quran/index.html]]]The Qur'an[/URL] when compared to the Bible, so people can only move up from that disgusting religion.
