Saudi Meeting on Combating Religious Intolerance Happening Near Blasphemy Flogging Site

( – Amid criticism over Saudi Arabia’s hosting of an international conference on combating intolerance and discrimination based on religion or belief, two U.S. lawmakers have introduced a resolution calling for the global repeal of blasphemy laws, citing the kingdom as an especially egregious offender.

The bill, introduced by Reps. Joseph Pitts (R-Pa.) and Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) states that “Saudi Arabia has used criminal charges of blasphemy to suppress discussion and debate and silence dissidents.”

  • Islamic theology incites devout believers to kill blasphemers. Denying this fact make discussion of this issue futile.

    The world needs to force a reformation on Islam. Islamic reformation cannot come from within because the same devout believers who will kill blasphemers will also kill reformers or apostates.

    This simple detail is the problem with Islam.

    Without reformation that stops Islamic theology from inciting devout followers to commit violence in the name of Islam, expect Islam to continue its bloody expansion.

    Here is my thesis on this fact. http://islamsfatalflaw.blogspo

    Sheila Jackson Lee may be a flake, but at least she gets this one right. I’m afraid we may have to use the same drastic actions here to effect the proper attitude adjustment that we used against Japan in the summer of 1945.
