Boing Boing reports that Iran is bringing in the death penalty for certain types of blogging.
Yes it will be a crime to establish a blog which disturbs mental security in society. Examples are promoting corruption, prostitution or apostasy. So athiests might be up for the chop.
The proposed Act lists such blogging amongst other crimes such as rape, armed robbery and kidnapping.
Now let me remind people that Iran is a member of the UN’s Human Rights Council. The one we are trying so hard to join. Now do you think that body will ever criticise Iran? Oh no.
