1 Year in Jail for Atheism



Aherif Gaber, a young 22 year old student studying at the Suez Canal University was sentenced to one year in jail for promoting atheism or "contempt of religion."  He was reported to the police by the university's own president, Mohamed A. Mohamedein after learning that the student was promoting an atheism page on Facebook.  

The news is just mind boggling and makes me appreciate even more the freedoms my great nation, the United States of America reminds us we have that are given by the Creator and cannot be taken away. Egypt really needs to realize that atheism is NOT a threat.
