    From the linky:

    Thus ex-Muslim atheists are guilty of apostasy—a hudud crime against God, like adultery and drinking alcohol. Potential sanctions can be severe: eight states, including Iran, Saudi Arabia, Mauritania and Sudan have the death penalty on their statute books for such offences.

    Let me understand this. As the son of a muslim, President Obama IS an apostate and would potentially suffer the death penalty if he travelled to countries such as Iran, Saudi Arabia, Mauritania and Sudan. Or will their imaginary sky-god make an exception for the wealthy and powerful? Or do they just ignore their own divine laws when it suites them?

    Correction: It was Barack Obama (President/Jr)’s grandfather who was a muslim (making his father an apostate.) I trust my questions still stand.
