The Good, The Bad, and The Scary

I have been sitting on this link longer than I should have, but any story that uses the word apostasy deserves some thinking about. It's a reminder that the rights we take for granted don't exist everywhere. Such things also have a tendency for me to label the religions that use them as "cults." But what do I know, I'm just a deluded heretic.

It is definitely good to see Ms. Carroll released unharmed and I bet her parents are ready for her to come back to the U.S. Unfortunately, her translator won't have the option or going home. And with the only journalists left in captivity being Iraqi, will the media drop the issue?
