    Default Yet another Islamist atrocity against religious freedom and free speech...

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20101112/...cebook_atheist

    I love the part about how a 'small minority' thinks that maybe this is going too far...

    Edit: If repeated death threats are not a banning offense, then what the hell is, Facebook? Too busy banning 'Everybody draw Mohammed day' sites to bother with such trifling things?

    "He should be burned to death," said Abdul-Latif Dahoud, a 35-year-old Qalqiliya resident. The execution should take place in public "to be an example to others," he added.

    Just another proof that religion should be eradicated, whatever its formal name is - christianity, islam, hinduism, etc.

    I read about that in the paper this morning. I'm not sure it's an atrocity yet since he's "only" been arrested, but probably soon they'll be able to add it to the list of radical human rights violations in those countries.

    I'm sure he'll be killed in prison for his 'offence'. This is the nasty, irrational side of religion, and it's not specific to Islam.

    Now, he faces a potential life prison sentence on heresy charges for "insulting the divine essence." Many in this conservative Muslim town say he should be killed for renouncing Islam, and even family members say he should remain behind bars for life.
    That is pure horse shit.

    I'm just gunna say what far too many Westerners are too cowardly to say, which is that, while problems like these might not be specific to Islam, they seem to be far more prevalent to countries and communities in which Islam is the predominant religion.

    Anyone who disagrees has their fucking head in the sand.

    Sharia Law appears to be all-encompassing without a separate government and judicial branch to rein in its interpretative excesses.

    We don't really know what a country ruled by non-Islamic radical fundamentalism is like. The US is fundamentalist Christian at least compared to most other countries, but it's not nearly as radical as a whole and more importantly, neither religion nor religious rules are forced by law. That's really the issue here - dissenting voices are not only not allowed, they're extremely harshly punished. Some parallels here with China, where the issue isn't even religion.

    I'm definitely more inclined to think it's the rabid, forced-fundamentalism that's the problem here.
