Religious Freedom

I think Afghanastan doesn't quite understand it yet:
Rahman's case illustrates a split over the interpretation of the Afghan constitution, which calls for religious freedom while stating that Muslims who reject Islam can be executed.

Can't someone stop this execution? I was haunted for years after reading of the women condemned to death by stoning in Kenya under Sharia for having a daughter supposedly as a result of adultery (more likely rape). I recently read in O that her case was tried and won by a woman taking on Sharia from within in Kenya. I'm hoping she visits Afghanastan.

More Kiraisms

On the phone to my mother regarding her parents being sick:

"My daddy has a tummy ache and mama is lying down with Greta so it's up to me to take care of everybody. I mean, they're my parents so they are raising me. But I'm taking care of everyone."

Poor neglected child. ;)

While Randy and I were discussing something...

"Excuse me, but I need to squeeze my way into this conversation."

Me - you do?

"Yes, I can help you understand the angles better. A conversation is like a triangle. It has a point at the top. I can help you understand the angles and get to the point."

How do you turn down that type of help?!
