Rahman Released

If you haven't heard it already, Christian convert Abdul Rahman has been released. Praise God, but he ain't out of the woods yet.

GetReligion has some coverage of the conversion issue from within Islam itself. Essentially the death penalty is traditionally applied, but it is not truly canonical. The Koran states that apostates should be punished, but does not order capital punishment. The death penalty is derived from a separate oral tradition about the Prophet Muhammed.
