Rahman has voices in his head and....

According to recent wire reports, Afghan Christian convert (from Islam) was being tried in an Afghani court on the charges of converting to Christianity. He is an apostate and therefore deserves to be hung.

Anyway after belated diplomatic pressure from the United States, vocal support of Abdul Rahman by the Danes (as is expected), an Italian retort and a forthright condemnation by the Australians, the Afghani government of Hamid Karzi has soughts a political solution: have a doctor declare Abdul Rahman insane. After all, he does hear voices in his head.

Sound familiar?

Well, yes. Now that I think about The Prophet Mohammed also heard voices in his head. He was frightened by them and had to be comforted in the lap of his wife Hadija.

Abdul Rahman doesn't seem phased by them. Perhaps, it is the Holy Spirit talking to him? Perhaps he is mad. But based on what he says below, this is not likely - he seems totally sane and aware of the situation.

In any case, the result of his voices is quite different from the consequence of the Prophet hearing his: Abdul Rahman is (was) sitting in jail ready to be killed by a judge for his faith:
I don't want to die. But if God decides, I am ready to face up to my
choices, all the way," he was quoted as saying in Sunday's La
Repubblica newspaper.
The Prophet on the other hand, used the voices in his head to order the slaughter of a tribe of Jews, and the merciless plundering, pillaging and raping of innocent people. Some voice!
