What do you say? How to explain?

So as I am dropping my son off at school today, NPR is on the radio and a quick blurb on the story of the teacher in Sudan who was sentenced to 15 days jail for blasphemy (of Islam) is broadcast. Part of the blurb is how some people were calling for her death. He asks why? I cannot come up with a coherent explanation so sputter sentences with the words "stupid", "ugly", "hateful", "prejudiced", and "intolerant" in different order. Wouldn't the world would be a whole lot better off if this kind of stupidity disappeared, but that's not ever going to happen as long as there are humans.
