is this the same Vatican that has a Holy Office for The Propagation of The Faith that was formerly known as The Holy Office of The Inquisition. Didn't They Torture, Mutilate, Boil and Burn People at The Stake?

Of course that is true but we are not talking recent history, to make the argument that because the catholic church visited hideous punishments on those that would no renounce their faith to a women accused of adultery and convicted by idiots and murderers in the 21st century is puerile at best.
I believe that the vatican has no authority to intervene it should be a matter of human decency that this women has her lashes and sentence commuted to a slapped wrist, nothing else would be acceptable in this century!

Tell me if we hold the Catholic Church responsible for Crimes committed 200 year or more ago, then should we not then hold Atheist and Socialist resposible for the more recent crimes of Stalin , Mao and Pol Pot? or is there a double stander in place?

But I think people should tread lightly on this case. The death penalty was imposed for the Murder of her Husband. Now the Justice system in Iran may have a lot to be desired , but that does not mean she is innocent. Is she an innocent widow caught up in Iranian politics or a Cold blooded Murderer. I dont think anyone here on topix has enough information to make that call.

She drugged her husband and then assisted her two lovers to kill him by electrocution placing electric cord around his neck. The coroner said it was a brutal and painful death for him, "he would have suffered greatly."

The stoning sentence has been removed from Iranian law for some time now, she is the last person in Iran to receive this sentence.

Her stoning sentence has already been revised to hanging.

There is no story here unless one of capital punishment in general.

Propaganda is about making good people support evil actions.
