Iranian Finds Christ, Death Row

Just like there are "no homosexuals" in Iran, there apparently will soon be no non-Muslims. Iranian Ramtin Soudmand has decided that Islam just isn't for him, opting to convert to Christianity. However, despite the Iranian government's failure to charge him with a crime, Ramtin was arrested and detained by Iranian authorities and will face the death penalty if an anti-apostasy bill is passed by parliament.

From Adnkronos International:
Tehran, 23 Sept. (AKI) - Iranian Christian convert Ramtin Soudmand faces the death penalty after being jailed for the crime of 'ertedad' or abandoning the Muslim faith.

Ramtin's father Hossein Soudmand, a Protestant pastor, was executed almost 20 years ago for converting to Christianity and refusing to deny his new faith.

Married with two children, Soudmand was detained by security officials in Mashad about a month ago.

"The authorities have not yet charged my brother with any crime, but we fear that his charges will be formalised after the execution of the sentence, like what happened with my father," said Ramtin's sister, Rashin in an interview with Adnkronos International (AKI).
There is very little to stop the Iranian government from ratifying the law, which will make apostasy a capital offense. The bill in question was approved by a vote of 196-7, and would institute a mandatory death sentence for any Iranian who leaves Islam for a different faith.

If "international pressure" can't stop the messianic mullahs from getting the bomb, how can it stop the Islamic republic from executing their own homegrown infidels?
