An elderly British man faces the death penalty in Pakistan after a court found him guilty of blasphemy.

Bad enough that they execute people for offending their brittle religious sensibilities, but killing a mentally ill man for expressing delusional thoughts is reprehensibly stupid and a far worse stain on Islam than anything this poor, delusional fellow could have written.
