Does one has to be religious at some point for the renunciation to be valid (i.e. convicted of apostacy) or does that vary by location/religion/some other factor? K61824Looking for potion recipes 22:45, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

It's defined as abandoning the faith, so applies to people who had been followers of a faith or (for ethnic, cultural or family reasons) are expected to be followers of that faith. E.g. in Malaysia, Islam is mandated for Malays but not for the various other ethnicities. WèàšèìòìďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 22:57, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
