Sharia Law

I received this note from the ACLJ:

I want you to take a few minutes to watch a special video preview that my team has prepared for you, live from the United Kingdom (UK). My son Jordan Sekulow went there to work on a critical story on religious freedom that will air on our television and radio programs in the weeks to come. You will meet a young couple who converted from Islam to Christianity and are now facing deportation to Syria. This will be a death sentence for them. They sought political asylum in the UK because of the danger they would face back in Syria. Under Sharia law, changing one's religion from Islam to Christianity is apostasy and is punishable by death.

I urge you to watch this very brief video update. Religious persecution worldwide is an increasingly urgent matter to which we are not immune here in the United States. We must remain vigilant - protecting our Christian brothers and sisters and fighting for religious freedom on their behalf. And we must keep our eyes open to the threats at the United Nations, poised by the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC). Their dangerous resolution discriminating against Christians - so that practicing your faith is an international crime - is the most aggressive, far-reaching, anti-Christian push we are up against today. Please commit this serious matter to prayer.

The ACLJ is an organization dedicated to the defense of constitutional liberties secured by law. American Center for Law and Justice is a d/b/a for Christian Advocates Serving Evangelism, Inc., a tax-exempt, not-for-profit, religious corporation, specifically dedicated to the ideal that religious freedom and freedom of speech are inalienable, God-given rights. The Center's purpose is to educate, promulgate, conciliate, and where necessary, litigate, to ensure that those rights are protected under the law.
