Man beaten, jailed and fined for questioning god. (Petition)
If you have not heard about this story, please take a second to watch/read and sign the petition. I don't know what, if anything signing this petition would do, but it only takes a few minutes and it shows this man has support around the world by people of all beliefs.

Thanks!

Petition: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petitio...n/vYBQzxXy

From whitehouse.gov Petition:
Quote:Call upon the Indonesian government to respect the freedom and dignity of all its citizens and to free Alexander Aan.

Earlier this year, Indonesian civil servant Alexander Aan posted
on Facebook that he doubted the existence of God. He was then attacked
and beaten by an angry mob, and arrested for blasphemy.
On June
14, Aan was convicted of “disseminating information aimed at inciting
religious hatred or hostility,” sentenced to 30 months in prison, and
saddled with a large fine. Now many Indonesians are calling for his
death.
By punishing Aan, Indonesia is violating its obligations to
the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which
guarantees every person the rights to freedom of belief and expression.
We petition the Obama administration to call upon the Indonesian
government to immediately release Alexander Aan and improve its
protections for religious dissidents and nonbelievers.
