Atheist Afghan man granted asylum in UK to protect him from ‘religious’ persecution – Telegraph

A young Afghan man who became an atheist after coming to Britain has been granted asylum on the grounds that the threat to his life for having no faith would amount to “religious” persecution. In what is thought to be the first case of its kind in the UK, the Home Office accepted that sending the man back to his country of birth could put him in danger specifically because of his lack of religious beliefs.

Well, the whackjob SoCons who like to masturbate themselves to the notion that atheism is somehow a “religion” will find this a perfectly reasonable proposition.

In fact, the guy is being granted asylum because Muslims murder those they consider to be apostates.  It doesn’t matter if he left Islam to become an atheist or a Holy Roller Baptist.  The penalty is the same, and his life would be in danger either way.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
