Free as in Freedom

I just saw Ust. Quraish Shihab on MetroTV this morning saying that we are free to choose our religion. He also said that one must face the corresponding consequences of choosing such faith him/herself.
However, since apostasy in Islam is punishable by death, I doubt it is free enough to be called freedom.

It's not that I lost my faith. I just found it disturbing that such foremost muslim scholar unaware of such thing.
