Our Friends the Saudis: Astrologers Must Die!
Islamic clerics in Saudi Arabia have been on a crusade (can I use that word?) to shut down Western-influenced media, and now their wrath is turned upon the heathen astrologers: The MEMRI Blog - Saudi Sheikh: Kill Hosts of Horoscope Programs.
Member of the High Judicial Council in Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Salah Al-Fawzan, has called to kill the hosts of TV horoscope programs on the grounds that they “practice magic.” Al-Fawzan contends that, according to Islam, they are guilty of “a crime whose perpetrators must be put to death by the sword,” and that “it is forbidden to pray over their bodies.”
Religion of peace!
