Escaping Islam

If a person is born to Muslim parents, then that child is brought up to be a Muslim. If a Muslim leaves the religion, which happens all the time, the Qur’an says that person is to be put to death. Heck, it’s pretty hard to not be put to death if you live in a country where the government enforces Sharia law. All you can do is constantly think and talk about how there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his prophet.

So I’ve been wondering if there is a point during a Muslim child’s life (and I use the term loosely, because children don’t really have religious beliefs of their own) when they have the option to get out of the religion before the death sentence kicks in for apostasy. If Islam doesn’t have this, then it means that Islam has no tolerance for atheists who were born to Muslim parents.

And that would suck.
