Letter to the Editor
The Muslim religion claims to be a peaceful religion and it strives for acceptance in the world community. However today the Muslim dominated government in Iran will execute a 19 year old girl for sex crimes as a result of her being forced into prostitution by her mother. They are going to execute this girl by stoning her to death.
Stoning children to death is an act of a society of barbarians. There is not redeeming virtues at all to a society that stones children to death. This act tarnishes the relationship of all Muslims in the world who stand silent and allow this sort of thing to occur. Muslims can talk about what they supposedly believe but what you believe is what you do and when you kill children by stoning then that’s in part what being a Muslim is all about. And it’s sick!
It’s interesting to note that Muslims are already trying justify this in term of “Christians do it too” or that it discourages other parents from prostituting their children. If Christians did it too they would be just as bad. And – the idea of killing children to teach their parents a lesson is also totally sick. First – wouldn’t it be more of a lesson to stone the parents who forced the girl into prostitution in the first place?
Societies who stone people to death are primitive barbaric cultures and their barbarism comes from their religion. That is what is referenced as to why they are stoning people. Stoning is WRONG – period. There is no reason that justifies it – never never never – under any conditions.
