The Saudi government, a seventh century blast-from-the-past regime subsidized by the world’s largest, most technologically advanced one, has just executed a man…for sorcery.
Forget what you might think about sorcerers. Sure, they look funny with those floppy, pointy hats and those wispy gray beards, but aside from some occasional out-of-control broomsticks, they’re really not all that bad.
A man should have the right to practice sorcery, whether the government thinks so or not. As long as his sorcery doesn’t interfere with the rights of others, what’s the harm?
Sorcery is a human right, and it is time the Saudi government start respecting that.
