A Year In Jail For Atheism
[su_right_ad]I wonder how many fundamentalists would like this to happen in America.
Sherif Gaber, 22, was recently sentenced to one year in jail by an Egyptian court for supporting atheism and creating an atheist Facebook page.
Gaber was a student at Suez Canal University in 2013 when his fellow students and a teacher snitched on him via a petition to the university’s then-president Mohamed Mohamedein.
Mohamedein turned Gaber into local authorities for contempt of religion, which he was convicted for on Monday.
The judge in the case said Gaber could avoid jail for now if he paid a bail equivalent to about $130 dollars.
While he is out of jail for now, Gaber faces a retrial that could put him in prison for over two years.
