I know that these types of discussions are ridiculous beyond description. I know that the women seen here are slaves to their masters, who have been indoctrinated (practically from birth) to feel less than human. I also know that few people care about this. But if nothing else, I find it amusing to listen to how these women, wearing cloth bags over their entire bodies, justify their actions.
What in the world is this world coming to? TGO
Unbelievable; that grown men are kidnapping and beheading people because they belong to a different religion. Shiite Muslims believe one fairy tale, Sunni Muslims believe another fairy tale, Kurdish Muslims believe yet another fairy tale, and then there are the Christians, who believe another fairy tale altogether. Mind you, they’re all fairy tales. So the question is, why are grown Muslim men such a brain dead lot? They need to let everyone believe their own fairy tale and get over it! TGO
Saudi Arabia is the mother of all sewers, being that it is the home of Islam. It has set the tone for the Islamic world for centuries; in much the same way that the Vatican has done for the Catholic Church.
Just consider however, that we are now in the 21st century, yet these barbarians still have the mindset of their 16th century predecessors. Will it take another 800 years for Muslims to become civilized and stop torturing and murdering people needlessly, just as the Catholic Church did during the Dark Ages? Hopefully not. TGO

RIYADH (Reuters) – An Islamic court in Saudi Arabia has sentenced a man to death for renouncing his Muslim faith, the English-language daily Saudi Gazette reported on Tuesday.
The man, in his 20s, posted an online video ripping up a copy of Islam’s holy book, the Koran, and hitting it with a shoe, the newspaper reported.
Saudi Arabia, the United States’ top Arab ally and birthplace of Islam, follows the strict Wahhabi Sunni Muslim school and gives the clergy control over its justice system.
Under the Wahhabi interpretation of Sharia Islamic law, apostasy demands the death penalty, as do some other religious offences like sorcery, while blasphemy and criticism of senior Muslim clerics have incurred jail terms and corporal punishment.
Executions in Saudi Arabia are usually carried out by public beheading.
International rights groups say the Saudi justice system suffers from a lack of transparency and due process, that defendants are often denied basic rights such as legal representation and that sentencing can be arbitrary.
The Saudi government has taken some steps to reform its judicial system but has also defended it as fair.
Last year a court in Jeddah sentenced Saudi liberal Raif Badawi to 1,000 lashes and 10 years in prison for publishing criticism of the kingdom’s ruling religious and political elite and calling for reforms in Islam.
The first of 50 of those lashes were carried out in January, but subsequent rounds of flogging have not occurred. Officials have not publicly commented on the case, but insiders say the lashing appears to have been quietly dropped.

As always, Sam Harris is a voice of reason. Too bad that reason is one trait that Muslims just don’t possess. TGO
