The Family Research Council is justifiably outraged that in U.S.-liberated and U.S.-subsidized Afghanistan, people can be put to death for converting to Christianity.

But the pro-Israel, national-security journal The American Thinker notes that it isn’t just Christians who are being threatened with execution:

Homosexuality, “lesbianism,” and conversion to faiths such as Judaism or Buddhism are also punishable by death. Afghanistan may exemplify what can happen when voting majorities are permitted unmitigated control over so-called “democracies” and when individual rights are respected only at the majority’s leisure.

I share the FRC’s outrage at Islamic intolerance of Christians. But I am disappointed that the FRC apparently does not care enough about the lives of gay people and non-Christians to protest their execution.
