You May Be A Radical Islamist

This blog ain't much, but at least it gives me an outlet for my ramblings, rantings, and ravings. It also spares my poor wife from having to listen to them. And while we may joke about the NSA monitoring us and the IRS targeting us, we really don't have to worry about the government taking action against us for what we post (I think...).

People in other parts of the world aren't as fortunate.
A judge in Saudi Arabia has recommended that imprisoned blogger Raif Badawi go before a high court on a charge of apostasy, which would carry the death penalty upon conviction...

Badawi's legal troubles started shortly after he started the Free Saudi Liberals website in 2008. He was detained for one day and questioned about the site. Some clerics even branded him an unbeliever and apostate.

In July, a Jeddah criminal court found Badawi, who has been in prison since June 2012, guilty of insulting Islam through his Free Saudi Liberals website and in television comments.

Badawi was sentenced to seven years in prison and 600 lashes...
First they imprison the guy. Then they gave him 600 lashes. Now he might be executed. All for 'insulting' islam.

I guess I won't be traveling to Saudi Arabia anytime soon.

I like to that I'm a pretty tolerant person. As long as nobody is shitting in my bed, what you do ain't gonna bother me.

That said, I can't help but wonder (more and more frequently, it seems) how much better off the entire world would be if we were to wipe radical practitioners of the "Religion of Peace" off the face of the earth.

I'm with you, Bear. This world would be so much better off if people would just live and let live. But for some reason there are lots of assholes out there who insist on running others' lives. Islamists aren't the only ones, but IMO they are the worst.
