The Morning Heresy with Paul the Morning Heretic

The Morning Heresy is your daily digest of news and links relevant to the secular and skeptic communities.      

The punishment just keeps on coming. Raif Badawi may be re-tried under the charge of apostasy, and thereby face the death penalty.

I'm sure there's some I'm missing.
