'Sorcerer' faces imminent death in Saudi Arabia

"The lawyer for a Lebanese man sentenced to death in Saudi Arabia for witchcraft has appealed for international help to save him." from BBC

I'm speechless, I fail to understand how any society can level the charge of 'witchcraft' against a fellow human being and then claim, against all odds, to be civilized.
Don't misunderstand me, I know perfectly well why a society would tolerate leaders who take these actions or allow these things to happen. 
I guess, even after all this time, I still have more faith in the essentially good component of human nature than is warranted.

Long story short? People are disgusting.

Miserable details here.
