Why doesnt the prime minister of Australia do something to protect her citizens. She should demand that he is not whipped and tell the saudi government that it is immoral, barbaric, and totally unacceptable. She should call for the support of the other secular countries at the united nations to boycott the country and remove her ambassadors until the sentence is revoked. It is about time that countries who act in this way are reminded that this is the 21st century and there are great rewards for being rational and severe consequences if you are not. The Australian leader is an atheist and its about time she made a moral stand to protect her citizens against this madness. I'm sure she will get the support of other major world leaders.
