Egyptian Comedian Found Guilty Of 'Defaming Islam'

Actor & comedian Adel Imam has been sentenced to three months in prison for insulting Islam. What horrible, insensitive thing did he do in the film to offend the religion of peace and tolerance? (Emphasis mine)

The state-run Ahram Online English website reported Thursday he was found guilty for "defaming Islam" in a 2007 movie in which he plays a corrupt businessman who tries to buy a university diploma. The film, Morgan Ahmed Morgan, included a scene with bearded Muslim men wearing traditional Islamic robes.

OH, THE HUMANITY! The fact no one has died for this offense when clearly someone should have just illustrates the open-mindedness and forgiveness of Islam.

I'm so glad our tax dollars were able to help Egypt achieve that democracy and freedom of expression they longed for.
