An anonymous reader writes "Egyptian blogger Alber Saber, maintainer of the Egyptian Atheists Facebook page, has been sentenced to three years in prison under Egypt's blasphemy law for posting the trailer for the anti-Muslim film Innocence of Muslims. This film was widely blamed for al-Qaeda's coordinated attacks on U.S. embassies on September 11 of this year, which were meant to pressure the U.S. for the release of Omar Abdel-Rahman, who is imprisoned in the U.S. for his role in the World Trade Center attack of 1993. Amnesty International calls the sentence an 'outrageous' assault on freedom of expression."

    You must have some inside information that no one else has. No one knows for sure who burned it down, but none of the suspects were Christian, And considering it was burnt before 0 AD, I am not sure how you would think it was.

    Jesus wept! To consider atheism a religion is to completely belittle actual religion.

    I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of athiests suddenly cried out in anger and rushed to their parents' basements so they can hastily convert their hissy-fits into textual content on their computers.

    You get double points, since you've also enraged all the revisionist leftists who refuse to believe that the USSR was the murdering, delusional train wreck that it truly was.
