Clare Lopez on Apostasy

The following intervention on freedom of religion was given at last week’s OSCE/HDIM conference in Warsaw by Clare Lopez of the Center for Security Policy. Ms. Lopez emphasized the fact that the right to apostatize is fundamental to freedom of religion as laid down in the UDHR. However, Islamic law does not recognize the right to leave Islam, and in most cases to do so is punishable by death.

One thought on “Clare Lopez on Apostasy

  1. Freedom of conscience is the first freedom.
    Sharia, through its denial of such freedom, is a crime against humanity.

    Clare Lopez deserves the appreciation of all freedom loving people.
