Even worse than this horrific crime are the responses found on the Huffington Post about the rape and execution of this Somali girl:
This is exactly what would happen in the United States if the religious-right were to take over.
Since Palin has the same aggressive stance for the consequences for being raped i.e. it’s the woman’s fault no matter what, can one then deduce that Palin has a TERROIST mindset? Only asking.
Just think, if Sarah Palin had been her governor, she would have had to pay for the rocks!
Somehow, I think US fundamentalists like Palin would think this was the appropriate punishment for a rape victim. If she could have had the rape victims in Wasilla stoned, I am sure she would have supported it, especially if Pastor Muthee had told her they were witches.
People without hope, clinging to their guns and religion.
When I saw the headline I thought it was about Wasilla, Alaska. This is the sort of insanity religious nutcases like Palin bring on.
My thoughts exactly. And if Palin had been this girl’s governor, she would have made her pay for the rocks!
I didn’t even know Focus On The Family had a chapter in Somalia!
It’s only a small exaggeration to say that Somalia is the kind of nation that the right-wingnuts would create if they took power. Totally unregulated, with religious fanatics in charge of kangaroo courts, witch hunts and a Bible-based science curriculum.
In Somalia we are being allowed to glimpse the world’s future. As our environment degrades due to the consequences of overpopulation there will be mass starvation even in those countries that currently are the wealthiest. Throw in a few pandemics, add a little nuclear war, and the entire world will fall into chaos.
This is beyond disgusting.
Whether by stoning, hanging, electrocution or lethal injection, the death penalty is wrong, barbaric and inhuman. 38 US states still have and in many cases use the death penalty. This is also a human rights issue that demands immediate attention and deserves our disgust too.
This is the kind of religious thuggery that would happen here if the Christian Right even gets a Theocracy government.
The Right Wing is exterminating Humanity
Look in the mirror, USA.
By stoning. Didn’t you read? All the same, it oughta to encourage more votes for Obama, as McSame and his cronies, Bush/Chainknee are the ones who foisted the horrific situation in Somalia.
How far are we from this, with all the savages who wish to criminalize abortion? The American Taliban is sitting in pews next to you and me. Many of us believe there will be major splits in denominations across the nation for many years to come…..CFF
