WHEELING, West Virginia (CNN) -- President Bush on Wednesday defended an Afghan who could face the death penalty for converting to Christianity.

Afghan authorities are trying Abdul Rahman, a 41-year-old Christian convert, on charges of rejecting Islam -- a death-penalty offense under Afghanistan's constitution, which is based on Islamic law.
During a speech in West Virginia, Bush said the United States expects Afghan authorities "to honor the universal principle of freedom."

"I'm troubled when I hear -- deeply troubled -- when I hear the fact that a person who has converted away from Islam may be held to account," he said.

What? I can't hear you, speak up. Religious hypocrisy?

Since 9/11 the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has received over 800 charge filings of discrimination of citizens or are or appear to be Muslism or Middle Eastern. The five commissioners of the EEOC are appointed by the President.

Article 1, Section 4 of the Texas Bill of Rights reads: "No religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office, or public trust, in this State; nor shall any one be excluded from holding office on account of his religious sentiments, provided he acknowledge the existence of a Supreme Being." Hasn't Bush been to Texas once or twice?

From Article 6, Section 8 of the North Carolina Constitution: "The following persons shall be disqualified for office:

First, any person who shall deny the being of Almighty God."

Looks like I'm out. Atheists aren't full citizens in North Carolina. I wasn't using my rights anyway. More discrimination pointed out here.

Anyone else wish Bush was at least a little concerned about religious discrimination in this country?
