Kuwait introduces death penalty for ‘cursing God and prophets’

Defendants who repent in court will be spared capital punishment but will get a jail sentence for five years and a fine of $36,000 or one of them, while repentance by those who repeat the crime is not acceptable, the bill says.

“We do not want to execute people with opinions or thought because Islam respects these people… But we need this legislation because incidents of cursing God have increased. We need to deter them,”

    I would hate to see one of those “freethinkers” slip up on a visit to Kuwait.

    I can only imagine exactly what they mean by “cursing God”. I imagine that’s just Arabic for “telling the truth”. Oh, how Muslims hate the truth…
