BEIRUT — The lawyer of a Lebanese TV psychic condemned to death for witchcraft by a Saudi court says he will not be beheaded. Wait, what?
What century is this? Beheading? I realize that these barbaric, Islamic cultures routinely cane, hang, lash, etc. people, mostly women, who they preposterously deem to be in violation of some obscure Islamic edict but, beheading for witchcraft? When's the last time a nation state officially beheaded anybody that you know of?
Bonus question to win a virtual cookie: without cheating, what or who is the origin of the phrase used as the title for this post?
