Child accused of blasphemy -- petition

Two weeks ago I linked to the case of Rimsha Masih, an 11-year-old mentally-disabled girl in Pakistan who has been accused of blasphemy and is in mortal danger both from mob violence and from the law (blasphemy carries the death penalty in Pakistan).  Rimsha's mother has started a petition asking the President of Pakistan to intervene; you can sign here.

Another example of religious extremism based on ignorance and superstition.

Many people believe religion is a force for good, blithely ignoring the evil that it does.

Religious morality: an obligation to murder anybody who disses your imaginary friend.
