Afghanistan "Legally" Persecutes Christian Converts from Islam

Here they go again, in what seems an endless series of stories of severe and often deadly religious persecution of Christians in Muslim nations (Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Sudan, now Afghanistan). Here is the Wall St. Journal link.

This time there are also allegations of sexual abuse of an imprisoned Christian convert:

Mr. Musa, in an open letter written in his jail cell in Kabul, said he has been beaten and sexually abused in prison. "The authority and prisoners in jail did many bad behavior with me about my faith in the Lord Jesus Christ," Mr. Musa wrote in the letter, which he addressed to supporters as well as President Barack Obama and the heads of international forces here.
