Afghanistan Man Deserves Freedom

By Scott McLean

For those who need proof that religious freedom does not exist everywhere, look no further. The case of Abdul Rahman shows that people in some countries are still persecuted for their beliefs.

The man could get the death penalty in Afghanistan because he converted to Christianity from the Islamic religion.
