Grim News from Afghanistan

No one said that war solves everything, gentle readers.

The ultra-despotic Taliban may not be in power in Afghanistan anymore, but it's not a paradise yet. Australia's Herald-Sun reports that a man who has allegedly converted from Islam to Christianity in Afghanistan faces trial and possible execution for "abandoning Islam."

Don't expect this to get much coverage in the United States, of course. Our media don't want to cover problems in Iraq or Afghanistan unless they directly impugn the Bush administration's prosecution of the war. Christians being persecuted isn't news, after all.
