    You seriously didn't link to a Brietbart article? Not after the elite, journalistic integrity they administered with the Shirley Sherrod story, RIGHT??? And just so we can be clear, which denomination and/or study under Islam are we looking at? You know, because we all know that such generalizing is not a good thing... RIGHT??? :rolleyes:

    For shits and giggles, I clicked on the Breitbart story, which mentions two rather obscure French sources (a blog and a website) both dedicated to Sakineh Mohammadi-Ashtiani, an Azerbaijani woman living in Iran who was convicted in 2006 of complicity in the murder of her husband. The international furor over her death sentence (by stoning) eventually led to a commutation (though not a pardon).

    The added tidbit about her being sentenced to 99 lashings following a photo allegedly of her on the cover of the Times of London without wearing a head scarf all refer back to the French sources, near as I can tell. That doesn't mean that they are unsubstantiated, just that there seems to be no collaboration (and certainly nothing from any official Iranian sources).

    It should be remembered that the French have banned headscarves in public schools. It should also be borne in mind that French media, much like anglophone media, are slanted politically, and the blog linked above comes from Le Monde, which is extremely conservative (Gaullist, actually).

    As with every n00b who posts without bothering to search to see if a topic's been talked to death already or not, the OP deserves a lash or two for neglecting to find this thread in the Women's Issues forum and this infamous one here, started by his erstwhile buddy FaceKing :wink:

    As I deplore the death penalty on principle, I find any application of it to barbaric and uncivilized, be it the result of Texas jurisprudence (which executes the developmentally disabled) or Sharia law. They are equally unjust IMO.

    "Unfiltered news" LMFAO!!!

    Here kids, it's an "unfiltered" interview of the supreme jackass by the brilliantly deadpan Chase Whiteside from New Left Media, those clever fellas who film all the silly Teabaggers.

    Was this meant to be a thread where we post articles about Islam? Really? I dont think we need to suggest the motive here.

    Wonder what would happen if we did it about any other religion?
