You ever hear of Thomas Yadegary?

Here, here, and here.

Thomas Yadegary is an Iranian who has emigrated to New Zealand, and converted to Christianity. But his visa is up and he is an overstayer, and the government of New Zealand is trying to send him back to Iran.

He doesn't want to go, because under Sharia' law, he may be imprisoned, tortured, or even executed for converting the Christianity.

New Zealand apparently doesn't think the possibility of execution is a good enough reason to extend his visa, and they are trying to deport him.

This is so messed up, and I thought I'd post it here, because you won't read it anywhere else.
