Afghanistan: cleric offers $300K for the head of anti-jihad film maker

First a Pakistani member of the parliament offers $100K, then ups it to $200K for the death of the movie producer.  Now Afghanistan puts its dog in the ring, hoping there will be enough money to get someone to avenge the insult to Muhammad and Islam.

How weak does your religion have to be in order to offer up money for the death of anyone who insults you or your God?
