Lebanese man gets 300 lashes, 6 years for helping woman convert to Christianity

A Lebanese man was sentenced to 300 lashes with a whip and six years in prison for his role in helping a Saudi woman convert to Christianity and flee the kingdom in the latest example of the religious intolerance that grips the region.

The court in the Eastern Saudi city of Khobar -- situated on the coast of the Persian Gulf -- also sentenced a Saudi man to two years in prison and 200 lashes for helping the young woman named Maryam -- who has been dubbed “the girl of Khobar” -- in her escape to Sweden to secure asylum.

Maryam, whose case has been closely followed in Saudi Arabia, criticized Saudi Arabia’s Sunni monarchy for instilling in her a hatred of Judaism and Christianity, according to the English-language Saudi Gazette. The Jeddah-based paper wrote that she “fell in love with the religions after she found peace in Christianity.”

Boy they sure are afraid of Bibles and The Gospel, aren’t they?

Satan must be worried.

And for those who think it’s the same “god” as the God of Israel, a little hint: The God of Israel *promotes* the Gospel; He doesn’t imprison, punish, kill people who convert to it.

Three hundred lashes? Some people don’t survive a hundred lashes. Shudder

On the bright side, he has 6 years to heal.

>>>Gotta love the tolerant religion of peace.<<<

He got off easy. I guess in “proper” muslim nations regular punishment for such a treasonous felons is no less than getting stubbed some 300 times.

On the other hand, Q-duffy couldn’t get any further than reprimanding this SOB, Assad or Mubarak could issue him a certificate of honor for pushing diversity.

As soon as some forms of diversity aren’t as equal as others, the first muslim POTUS just coudn’t tolerate these half-assed muslim leaders.

Get ready, Lebanon. Hussein Osama is coming!

“....in her escape to Sweden to secure asylum.”

.
Wrong place for her to go — Sweden has too many muslims and her life will be in jeopardy the moment she gets off the plane.

And yet we allow the Saudis to fund mosques built here. Tragic.

Prayers for Maryam and the two men who helped her. Their reward is waiting for them.

Sooner than later this religion of ‘Peace’ needs to go the way of the Do-Do bird as it is just about as useful as socialism or teats on a boar. That is if mankind wants to continue on its evolutionary path of enlightenment.

As a Freeper so eloquently stated a while back “Any well-founded religion can survive blasphemy except (i)slam and this is the reason it is forbidden
