Saudi blogger faces death penalty for creating web site where people can have open conversations.

The creator of a Saudi Arabian web site called Free Saudi Liberals faces a charge of "apostasy," which comes with an automatic death sentence. 

The charge stems from comments made on his site by users that criticized senior Saudi religious leaders. 

He had initially been charged with "insulting Islam through electronic channels," but that charge was upgraded to apostasy by a judge.
