Sameh Khouzam is free

Sameh Khouzam, an Egyptian persecuted and tortured in his homeland for his religious beliefs, was freed yesterday after seven months in York County Prison. The York Dispatch has coverage, including photos of his homecoming.

Today, his first full day of freedom, is Religious Freedom Day, in honor of Jefferson's Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom!

He should never have had to go through this, but for someone who was tortured for his religious beliefs and is seeking shelter in America, it is appropriate.

Great work ACLU! Happy Religious Freedom day.
