Via the BBC:

A Lebanese man sentenced to death in Saudi Arabia for sorcery has been given a temporary reprieve, his lawyer says. Ali Sabat’s execution was scheduled for Friday but his lawyer, May el-Khansa, told the BBC she had been assured by a Lebanese minister it would not happen. Mr Sabat, who is in his 40s, was the host of a satellite TV programme in which he predicted the future. He was arrested by religious police while on pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia in 2008 and convicted of sorcery.

    It’s interesting that the “progressive” blogs have had no mention of this, whereas they were foaming at the mouth when a Christian principal banned two lesbians from going to prom together at a small town high school last month. I guess they must have different priorities.

    C’mon, it sounds like the guy was guilty of practicing sorcery. That sorcery is applesauce doesn’t change that.
