I hope your mind flashed right to the scene in the Monty Python film where the ridiculous mob calls for the witch to be burned which they themselves have made a witch by dressing her as a caricature of a witch. In case you aren’t familiar with it-
Now that you’re up to speed I’ll get to the point of the post: over in Saudi Arabia they executed a woman the other day because she was accused of being a witch. It’s not a joke or a skit or even mockery of the kind of nonsense so rightly on display in the quest for the Holy Grail. In Saudi Arabia the evidently believe there are witches and they chop their heads off.
And this is the intolerant country that won’t let women drive but that we are so dependent on we look the other way even though we can clearly see their horrific human rights violations. Our former President famously held hands and walked a quiet little path with their King. All because our thirst for foreign oil has robbed us of our senses and dignity.
A Saudi woman was beheaded after being convicted of practicing “witchcraft and sorcery,” according to the Saudi Interior Ministry, at least the second such execution for sorcery this year. The woman, Amina bint Abdulhalim Nassar, was executed in the northern Saudi province of al-Jawf on Monday. A source close to the Saudi religious police told Arab newspaper al Hayat that authorities who searched Nassar’s home found a book about witchcraft, 35 veils and glass bottles full of “an unknown liquid used for sorcery” among her possessions. According to reports, authorities said Nassar claimed to be a healer and would sell a veil and three bottles for 1500 riyals, or about $400.
She sounds like she did the same kind of thing our worthless deceptive pentebabbleist televangelists do- except they sell anointing oil and holy water along with handkerchiefs they’ve ‘prayed over’. And we don’t execute them.
Saudi Arabia- the world’s richest redneck land.
