-- Recurring Theme (People Purporting to Speak for Islam):(1) A Saudi judge ruled in April that it was finally time for Ali al-Khawahir, 24, to suffer for stabbing another boy in the back when Ali was 14. The victim was paralyzed, and under Saudi justice, Ali must also be struck with paralysis or else raise the equivalent of about $260,000 to compensate the victim.(2) Saudi cleric Abdullah Mohamed al-Daoud in May urged his 100,000 Twitter followers to "sexually harass female cashiers" to discourage them from working outside the home.(He is the one who urged in February that babies be veiled to protect them from sexual harassment.)[The Guardian (London), 4-3-2013][BBC News, 5-29-2013]

-- Closer to God Than You Are:(1) Crystal McVea, author of a recent book chronicling her near-death experience, told a "Fox & Friends" TV host in April that among her most vivid memories of the incident was getting so close to God that she could "smell" him.(2) In May, Anna Pierre, a candidate for mayor of North Miami, Fla., announced on her Facebook page that she had secured the endorsement of Jesus Christ. That would be doubly fortunate for her since a month earlier, she had complained that unknown people had been leaving bad-luck Vodou-ritual feathers, food scraps and candles on her doorstep.(Jesus' stroke is apparently not what it used to be: She finished seventh in the race.)[Raw Story, 4-2-2013][Miami Herald, 5-14-2013; WTVJ (Miami), 5-15-2013]

-- Religious Messages From All Over:(1) A catering company in Leicestershire, England, became a holy site in May after the Hindu owner found an eggplant that resembles the elephant-headed Lord Ganesh. He said that he prays to it now twice daily and has so far welcomed about 80 visiting worshippers.(2) As part of his recent U.S. tour, the Dalai Lama, introduced to a University of Maryland audience by Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, greeted the governor on stage by rubbing noses with him.[ThisIsLeistershire.co.uk, 5-6-2013][Washington Post, 5-7-2013]
