    According to wikipedia Indonesian law article 156(a) says blasphemy is punishable of up to 5 years in prison just to put it in perspective.

    Apparently you can get the death penalty for it in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.

    The good news is that the younger generation in many Muslim countries are actively resisting the religious brainwash.

    An Iranian friend told me that he estimated that 75% of Iranians have no desire to be Muslim. Iran has a very high percentage of the population under 21. You may remember the case of a group of teens from Iran being arrested for singing the song ‘Happy’ in public.

    It seems that change will not happen in those places through revolution, which would become unspeakably bloody. It will happen because the oppressive dinosaurs will die out. I hope.
