Man ‘sentenced to death for atheism’ in Saudi Arabia

A man in Saudi Arabia has reportedly been sentenced to death on charges of apostasy after losing two appeals.

Several local media reports identified the man as Ahmad Al Shamri, in his 20s, from the town of Hafar al-Batin, who first came to the authorities’ attention in 2014 after allegedly uploading videos to social media in which he renounced Islam and the Prophet Mohammed.

    Not all bad.
    Being found insane and then spending the rest of your life chained to a big tree trunk or the backyard wall would not be a bed of roses either.

    Meanwhile in North America atheists demand that Christmas trees be banned, Christmas carols be banned and anyone opening a meeting with a prayer must be stopped. The truth is that they never had so good as living where they are free to express their radical views and trample on the beliefs and feeling of the majority.

    • We should arrange free trips to Saudi.

    • I don’t know if he’s been executed yet, but this particular atheist is going to wake up to an embarrassing surprise: he’s going to wake up in Heaven!
