Just remember, here in America you have the right to be an atheist. If you were one of the "poor folks over there in Afghanistan" you'd be executed for your non belief. Under Taliban rule, the death penalty is handed out for homosexuality, adultery, teaching Christianity, and lots more. And before you write my statements off as stupid hype, overreacting, or exagerating, check out recent history. Wonderful thing about the internet is you can read news from sources all over the world to get a clearer picture of things abroad.
