Saudi man who got 1000 lashes to get death sentence?
#1
If you ask me, it serves the guy right. Being guilty of apostasy is a serious crime. Obviously.

And there is no double standard involved... you hear.

Ask all those extremely and fundamentally religious Saudi businessman who haunt the fleshpots of the west, roaming around pissed out of their heads on seriously expensive booze, urinating in the less well trod corridors of 5 star hotels, doing cocaine and lustily chasing women of a certain professional standing -- soon followed by the required penicillin injections.

Thank goodness these good and respectable Saudi's aren't subject to the attentions of the zealous religious police, or else there would be dozens of apostasy executions a day and Saudi business elite would cease to exist within a year.

Raif Badawi could face trial for apostasy

Sunday 01 March 2015

Raif Badawi, the Saudi Arabian blogger whose punishment of 1,000 lashes has prompted international condemnation, may now face the death penalty.

Mr Badawi's wife, Ensaf Haidar, told The Independent in a series of messages that judges in Saudi Arabia's criminal court want him to undergo a re-trial for apostasy. If found guilty, he would face a death sentence.
She said the "dangerous information" had come from "official sources" inside the conservative kingdom, where Mr Badawi has already been sentenced to 10 years in prison and 1,000 lashes administered at a rate of 50 per week for criticising the country's clerics through his liberal blog.

In 2013, a judge threw out the charge of apostasy against the 31-year-old blogger after he assured the court that he was a Muslim. The evidence against him had included the fact that he pressed the "Like" button on a Facebook page for Arab Christians.
The news that the charge may now be re-examined will come as a bitter blow to Mr Badawi's family and supporters, who had hoped that the international pressure over his case would prompt Saudi Arabia to reduce his sentence.
Although he remains in prison, he has only been flogged once since his sentence was passed, with subsequent punishments being repeatedly postponed.

The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.
