    Kuwait's parliament on Thursday passed a bill stipulating the death penalty for Muslims who curse God, the Muslim holy book, all prophets and the wives of Islam's Prophet Mohammed.
    Forty MPs, including cabinet ministers, voted for the bill in the second and final round of voting, against six opponents who included all five Shiite MPs present and liberal MP Mohammad al-Sager.

    The bill introduces two new articles to the Gulf state's penal code specifically to stiffen penalties for such offences. Non-Muslims who commit the same offence face a jail term of not less than 10 years, according to the bill.

    Defendants who repent in court will be spared capital punishment but will get a jail sentence for five years and a fine of $36,000 or one of them, while repentance by those who repeat the crime is not acceptable, the bill says.

    Yikes, sounds like Kuwait is going backwards. I was deployed there in 2007 and they had some pretty nice shopping malls and restaurants, its a shame to see their heading this way.

    They still have those same shopping malls and restaurants there.

    You just can't publically curse God inside of them. :cool:

    It's their country, they can do what they want with it.

    Did anyone seriously think that they'd show appreciation for us saving them in Gulf War I by installing religious freedom?

    The appreciation for the Americans from Gulf War 1 was pretty much gone after a year.

    How would allowing people to blaspheme God show appreciation to the U.S. for driving out Saddam?

    Besides, Kuwait already has religious freedom; it just has limits. :cool:
