Alexander Aan has been imprisoned for 30 months in Indonesia for posting “God doesn’t exist” on his Facebook page. Amnesty international describes this as a serious setback for freedom of expression and I agree. No one should be imprisoned for an idea that they have, nor for speaking that idea in a public forum.
Irregardless of our religious or political affiliations we should all be able to agree on this. This is a petition at whitehouse.gov to ask the president to put pressure on the Indonesian government to release Alexander Aan.
