A young woman, Asia Bibi, had a few words to say about Islam.
She said that “the Quran is fake and your prophet remained in bed for one month before his death because he had worms in his ears and mouth. He married Khadija just for money and after looting her kicked her out of the house,” local police official Muhammad Ilyas told CNN.
Yes, the police got involved! More than involved: Asia Bibi has been sentenced to death for blasphemy.
She was also fined $1100.
Meanwhile, Walid Husayin has been writing an atheist blog, anonymously, in Palestine. He also mocked gods on Facebook. Now he’s been caught — he was spotted posting heretical words on his computer in an internet cafe — and people are very unhappy with him.
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.
“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.
The state probably won’t kill him — they’re only talking about a life sentence in prison.
You know, the gods are only harmless phantasms. It’s their believers who are parasites and killers and dangerous lunatics.
