But fortunately for Ervin and her feminist support group I have done some research and I’ve have actually found a college professor who issued a real fatwa. Since a) the professor issued the fatwa against Marxists and, b) most feminists are Marxists, this should give the ladies on the Dartmouth College feminist list serve something productive to do – as opposed to falsely accusing non-violent Christians of issuing (or encouraging) death threats.
Read carefully the following excerpts of an email sent by Kent State professor Julio Pino to a Marxist list serve based in Utah:
Subject: A Fatwa on Louis
From: Julio Pino: firstname.lastname@example.org
Date: Thu, 14 Sep 2000 14:01:37 -0700
Woe, excuse me homes, I didn't realize that to post an opinion on the Marxism List one needed to print academic credentials first. But you asked for it. Should you want a complete record of my publications on Brazil, Marxist pedagogy, etc, I'll supply that too.

Touche! That means my only recourse is to issue a fatwa: The Moderator of the "Marxism List" and all those who willingly help him conduct it are hereby sentenced to death. al-Asad Ibn Pino
It should be noted that Julio Pino uses several names on the internet when spreading his message of mass murder and violence. Among them are “Al-Assad Ibn Pino,” “Julio Assad Pino,” “Julio Cesar Pino,” and simply “Julio Pino.” Further note that the moderators of the aforementioned Marxist list serve chose to delete the last few characters of his Kent State email address, presumably for privacy reasons. I chose to undelete them because I am confident that email@example.com is the only email address registered to a “Julio Pino” beginning with the first five characters “jpino” used to author emails using more than one of the common internet names for Kent State’s Julio Pino.
If I am wrong, feel free to sue me for defamation, Julio. Your reputation is worthless.
It is probably about time for my readers to get back in touch with Kent State’s Provost (firstname.lastname@example.org) to see whether the university still defends Julio Pino and insists that he uses no university resources to advocate mass violence.
Hopefully, the ladies on the Dartmouth College feminist list serve will help me do my “dirty work” by joining in my mission of working against, not for, the issuance of death threats by university professors. I guess you could say “I need some support!” in fighting real, not manufactured, threats of violence.
