Remind me not to travel to Iran.
A few weeks ago, the Islamic Parliament in Iran approved a draft law which shocked the country and is at the center of current debate.
The draft law is asking for expanded sentencing for those who publish atheistic articles and pornographic materials, or articles about rap, sex slave exports, banditry, prostitution, depravity, and kidnapping.
According to this draft, which was approved for faster review by the majority of Majlis [Iranian members of Parliament], the death sentence could be used against bloggers, journalists, artists, and intellectuals who can be easily falsely accused and convicted by intelligence services or the judiciary branch for publishing "articles against Islam."
Iran intends to execute Atheist bloggers? I read things like this and scratch my head. Here in America this is not possible. Can it be so bad elsewhere? It is so easy to forget that the freedoms we enjoy are not shared by the rest of the world. Iran needs a revolution. One the overthrows its archaic theocracy.
