Death Penalty in Iran

07/03/2009 16:11

As many of you probably know, Iran implemented a new law in July 2008 extending the use of the death penalty to "online crimes". This category includes - bloggers(especially on freedom of speech and religion, minority rights), websites that promote corruption, prostitution, and apostasy!!! Originally the death penalty applied to such crimes as slurring Islam, and drug trafficking.

Anyone think this is completely ridiculous? Should people be executed for online blogging? And although prostitution and corruption are inherently wrong, are they monumental crimes deserving of execution?
