Would you be convicted?

According to this article in the Star-Telegram in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, Abdul Rahman is a free man. Rahman was the man on trial in Afghanistan for converting to Christianity from Islam sixteen years ago. The lead sentence of the article has this to say:
An Afghan court on Sunday dismissed a case against a man who converted from Islam to Christianity because of a lack of evidence and he will be released soon, officials said.
The article goes on to explain this "lack of evidence." However, it got me thinking: could I be convicted by a jury for being a Christian? Could you?
