“The seven accused persons were convicted of insulting the Islamic religion through participating in producing and offering a movie that insults Islam and its prophet,” Judge Saif al-Nasr Soliman said.
The crude, low-budget video, produced privately in California, denigrated the Prophet Mohammad and triggered anti-U.S. protests and attacks on Western embassies around the Muslim world.
As if there hasn’t been enough bloodshed over this stupid film we now have Egypt openly calling for murder of those that practice free speech to speak out against Islam. From the times of the revolution in Egypt I started to worry that maybe the conservative side of things could be right for a change, maybe Egypt really would descend in to an Islamic theocracy. The stories that I have continually seen coming out of Egypt worry me that those predictions are coming true and that we will only continue to see more of this.

The country’s Islamist-dominated government has introduced a law that would allow a man to have sex with his wife for up to six hours after her death, the Daily Mail reports. Yes, after her death.
Some are calling it the “farewell intercourse law,” but this blogger is just going to call it what it is — gross. And thankfully, illegal if you happen to live in the U.S.
Egypt’s dead sex law can apparently be traced to a 2011 statement made by cleric Zamzami Abdul Bari. He believes that marriage is valid even after death, and according to the Daily Mail, that both men and women should be able to have intercourse with a dead spouse.

It looks like a bit of an interesting read. I don’t really think that there will be any way to verify if this tomb is “the Jesus” or what it is exactly. If it could be verified though I have to wonder if it would end up changing the mind of many Christians, or if it would give new faith to people?
Obviously if there is a tomb of Jesus he was not resurrected and raised bodily in to Heaven. It does leave open the interpretation of shedding the mortal body and raising up again in a “spiritual” body but that is an interpretation that doesn’t usually get a lot of backing. When asked in a debate once what would make him no longer believe in God or Christianity William Lane Craig said “if the tomb of Jesus was found and it was proven that he did not rise bodily in to Heaven”. So I guess if this really is “Jesus” William Lane Craig can no longer be a Christian?

Ali told her husband: “Suddenly it came into my mind that I should correct my behaviour towards Allah.
“Then a voice told me ‘if you love Allah you should sacrifice your daughter.”’
She told a doctor she strangled the child and when she was unconscious, she carried her on to the kitchen table where she used the knife to ensure the spirits were exorcised.
As she stabbed the girl, Koranic verses were played in the background on an electronic device, the court heard.
Just in case you missed it, this week we also had the heart breaking story of a 13 year old girl suffocated during an “exorcism”.
Fifty-six-year-old monk Kazuaki Kinoshita and the girl’s 50-year-old father Atsushi Maishigi were accused of what police described as “waterfall service”: strapping the victim Tomomi Maishigi to a chair and dousing her face with water.
News reports said the two men poured water over her as an “exorcism” with the father holding the girl down while the monk chanted sutras.
Miss Maishigi’s mother called an ambulance after her daughter fell unconscious, but it was too late. She was confirmed dead early the next morning.
Anyone want to be next on my list of ridiculous people that say religion doesn’t harm anyone? Sure hope not.
