She still needs 107.000 - 90% there!

Yeah, he looked very different... And I'm glad to hear about Malala! How many signatures do they need?

Good to know, Hope - he's really lost weight, hasn't he? Who knows what he's been subjected to. 3years is absurd for saying, "I don't believe in fairy tales."

Malala's petition stands at nearly 893,000 now, with a lot of signatures coming from Brazil.

Alber Saber Released on Bail, Appeal Date Set

A quick update on the situation facing Egyptian atheist blogger Alber Saber, who was convicted of blasphemy and sentenced to three years in prison last week.

Daily News Egypt reports that Alber was released on bail yesterday, set at 1,000 Egyptian pounds (about $162). The troubling part (and everything about this case is troubling) is that this bail was paid a week ago, and yet the court kept Alber locked up in jail for no apparent reason. His lawyers are not happy about this.

Alber’s defense team will appeal his conviction, with a date set for January 26th, 2013.

Daily News Egypt also notes that these kinds of charges about offending religious feelings have been on the rise under the presidency of Mohamed Morsi.

Welcome - we're a little bit of ex-everything here, so I'm sure you'll fit right in.

Comment by hangarsinshoes on February 4, 2013 at 12:24pm

um... Hi. I'm new here, I just discovered this site in its entirety. right to the point: I've been an ex-muslim for a few years and I'm tired of having friends I'm fake with. And my search led me here. It's pretty cool knowing there are others like me here, it gives me a shred of hope. So I'm looking forward to talking with the lot of you, be it on chat or skype, and perhaps eventually face-to-face.

Malala Yousafzai speaks publicly for first time since Taliban shooting

Malala Yousafzai, the 15-year-old Pakistani schoolgirl and activist who was shot in the head by a Taliban assassin on her way home from school last fall, has spoken publicly for the first time since the shooting.

If you have not yet signed the "Malala's Hope" petition, to be delivered to the Pakistani President, the Prime Minister, and the Governor of the province in which Malala lived, please do so, and urge your friends to sign it as well. The goal is to reach one million signatures from around the world, and the tally currently stands at 891,401 - so near, but more is required.

Malala has been nominated for the Nobel Prize.

Here's SOME progress --

Morocco announces plan to change law allowing rapists to marry underage victims

RABAT, Morocco - Nearly a year after Morocco was shocked by the suicide of a 16-year-old girl who was forced to marry her alleged rapist, the government has announced plans to change the penal code to outlaw the traditional practice.

Women's rights activists on Tuesday welcomed Justice Minister Mustapha Ramid's announcement, but said it was only a first step in reforming a penal code that doesn't do enough to stop violence against women in this North African kingdom.

A paragraph in Article 475 of the penal code allows those convicted of "corruption" or "kidnapping" of a minor to go free if they marry their victim and the practice was encouraged by judges to spare family shame.

Last March, 16-year-old Amina al-Filali poisoned herself to get out of a seven-month-old abusive marriage to a 23-year-old she said had raped her. Her parents and a judge had pushed the marriage to protect the family honour. The incident sparked calls for the law to be changed.
