My Email to the Saudi Embassy regarding Raif Badawi's sentencing

In an effort to show support and as a direct copy of Greta Christina's action here is my letter to the Saudi Embassy. You can read what Greta Christina had to say here.

Subject: Regarding the sentencing of Raif Badawi

The grotesquely harsh punishment awarded to Raif Badawi for the crime of "Insulting Islam" is in an international context "beyond the pale." That insulting Islam is a sentence carrying offense is in itself worthy of all critique, and that Saudi Arabia is effectively going to torture and exact outrageous fines for his pursuit of a more liberal and progressive Saudi Arabia is reprehensible. This is in direct violation of basic human decency and fundamental human rights. If Saudi Arabia wishes to accord international relations it should terminate all such barbaric actions immediately.



And I'll say as well... Send your own!!!
