“Beheading planned in Saudi sorcery case”

From CNN:

A Lebanese man charged with sorcery and sentenced to death in Saudi Arabia is scheduled to be beheaded on Friday, the man’s lawyer said Wednesday.

What did he do to deserve this?

Sibat is the former host of a popular call-in show that aired on Beirut-based satellite TV channel “Sheherazade.” According to his lawyer, Sibat would predict the future on his show and give out advice to his audience.

Yup, a TV psychic. If “sorcery” is code for “bullshitter” then I almost see their point. But executing someone for conning people is way too far, a slap on the wrist and a fine, that works, but beheading him, no way. Religious nuts + woo = very bad things happening to people. What is this, the middle ages?
