16. That fact that apostasy is a crime in 23 Muslim countries says a lot about their "tolerance"

Apostasy in Islam is commonly defined as the conscious abandonment of Islam by a Muslim in word or through deed.It includes the act of converting to another religion (such as Christianity) by a person who was born in a Muslim family or who had previously accepted Islam

Twenty-three Muslim-majority countries, as of 2013, cover apostasy in Islam through their criminal laws.
(up to and including the death penalty)

Is that a state crime in any other religion?
