Quick, call Slim Whitman, Ayatollahs issue death fatwa for burners
Two Iranian grand ayatollahs issued fatwas calling for the killing of those who insult the Koran, including anyone who burns the Islamic holy book, the state-run Fars news agency reported.
No one was specified in the decrees, which were issued by Nasser Makarem-Shirazi and Hossein Nouri-Hamedani in response to questions asked by student groups from universities in Tehran, Fars said. Such an action against any individual could only be carried out with the authorization of an Islamic religious judge, they said.
Ain't it cool when the dignity of God is upheld by a bunch of genocidal racists from an alternate universe?
"Undoubtedly, the blood of a person who burns the Koran should be shed," Makarem-Shirazi was cited by Fars as saying. Everybody should "strongly condemn" such an act.
