"As the punishment comes from God, the people stoning wound not be sinful - they are just doing what God instructed."<quoted text>
Next time your girlfriend / wife cheats on you - give the man a box of chocolates and say "thanks for giving her her first orgasm! My thing was too short to do it. Please come again. I want to invite you to my Christmas party."
In a Muslim country using proper implemented Shariah Law men and women don't mix so freely like in the West, wear modest dress, lower their gazes, don't get drunk or drink in the first place... A man and woman who are not closely related together that they can't marry - can never been alone together in private... So to have sex outside wedlock is much harder, whatever the punishment is...
In the West pre-marital sex between non married boy and girl is fine and with the media / tv / movies all portraying sex outside wedlock your disgust for it has been REDUCED - not a big deal (adultery is still bad) so a crime of stoning the man or woman is a bit harsh!
As the punishment comes from God, the people stoning wound not be sinful - they are just doing what God instructed.
And there's the rub. "doing what God instructed" Is there any more proof needed to demonstrate how despotically retarded islam and its followers really are.The koran should be seen for what it is,a handbook for thugs and terrorists. Need to justify murdering your wife? convert to islam and get a free pass from the muslim community.
