Reversion

An Egyptian court just ruled that Coptic Christians who have converted to Islam can revert to Christianity. While it does not speak well for religious tolerance, that this was even an issue, the part that really surprised me was that people had their religious affiliation on their identity cards. Talk about discrimination potential. You don't even need to ask prying questions to avoid hiring a non-Muslim. As soon as you see their I.D., you can come up with some excuse for why they are unqualified. It's an invitation to discriminate.
