Here is the SourceFed report: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxDh2JQRiu8 She was allegedly seen burning pages of what they think was the koran. Last month, a man accused of desecrating a Koran was dragged from a police station by a mob and beaten to death. This isn't a matter of evil government action here. These are the people in the street doing this violence. Clear barbarism. *update for clarity: She has not be sentenced yet. (that was posed as a question like 'how could she'. As of an hour ago, she is being held in solitary confinement for her own safety. This is what I'm talking about. She is in solitary to protect her from the public.

This is what happens when you take 'holy' books written thousands of years ago too literally. If we were to follow all the advice in Leviticus in the bible then we'd be putting death people for all sorts of ridiculous things. Luckily in the west we have managed to form governments with some separation between the religious nutters and government although in the US that separation is getting less and less.

Aah you said it so well, I can relate.

THE QURAN WE BELIEVE IS EXACTLY THE SAME AS IT WAS. IF U CAN FIND THE TIME TO READ ITS TRANSLATION U WILL BE PLEASENTLY SURPRISED. ITS TEACHINGS ARE DOWN TO EARTH AND PRACTICAL.

Best Answer

Who cares? I'm down to earth and practical anyway. I don't need some supposed 'holy' book to help me with that.

Best Answer

I commend you for representing your religion in ways other than fanatics but Hirafu has a point. Even in the Quran, you will find statements to kill those who oppose your view or step away from faith (2-192). Even if you don't like to fight, You should because your god knows best(2-216), If you travel and are in fear of disbelievers, it's ok if you don't pray because disbelievers are forever your enemy.... hunt them down even if you are tired. (4-101to104), Kill those who do not believe in Allah (4-89), Urge the believers to fight... if there are 20 of you, you can defeat 200 of the unbelievers because they are people who do not understand (8-65) There are quite a few violent and prejudice statements like this. There are also barbaric statements like if you are a man, you are made to be better than women, so if you see ill conduct in your woman, yell at her, stop sleeping with her and beat her. But if she becomes obedient again, don't hold it against her. (4-34)
That is not exactly down to earth and practical today.

women aren't treated as people so much as objects in Islam, at least in the middle east. Coupled with the fact that she was disabled, she didn't stand a chance :(

Best Answer

You mean, like Texas executing mentally deficient people who cannot understand their crimes, or innocent people who were executed merely because they could not afford competent council?



It seems we condone much violence in America that it should not surprise us that when religion is the law, abuse happens too.

Best Answer

It is true (I am a legal reform activist), and Texas (in the bible belt) is among the worst states for execution; they are uncovering now that they have executed a number of people who were innocent. "Don't mess with Texas?" Religion + government = travesties. This type of avocation is where I started to really release from religion as I learned about bias and prejudice and how people knee-jerk react to things based merely on belief. Belief just isn't the same thing as fact.

Best Answer

Faces execution...has not been sentenced. It won't happen.

Best Answer

As if that alleviates the stresses on those who love her...

Best Answer

No I'm sure it does't. It's just irritating when people report non factual news.

Best Answer

I posted this as a question not a fact and linked the news feed for all the facts to be gained. The actual question is Why does their government condone such violence? I also posted the case where the mob dragged the person out of the jail and beat him to death. Why do they allow insane people do take justice into their own hands.

Best Answer

You started with "11y old Pakistani girl with down syndrome sentenced to death"...you basically incited the proverbial EP mob with an untruth in the way in which you stated it and I didn't care for it. Obviously I don't condone any govt that condone such violence, then again my country condones capitol punishment which I feel is wrong as well.

that's too much. they don't treat people with disablility like they do in North America. they take their Koran very seriously.

Best Answer

koran does not ask to do this. the fanatics are doing whatever they want to in the name of islam . it is a beautiful and peaceful relegion. not what these monsters are depicting.

Best Answer

this is not about religion, it is about intolerance and power.

I am very very sure the Koran does not say anything about killing someone for burning the koran.

Best Answer

yes this is true.

It's their lack of a separation between church and state, and their ultra Muslim culture. Religion turns people into pawns.

Best Answer

in other countries parents hire thire daughters "12-20" to prostitute not for money but for food.

what do think about that ?

Best Answer

There are issues in every culture. Prostitution is legal in many countries including the U.S. (Nye County, Nevada). The problem, to me, is why are these people having children they can't afford to feed? In Thailand, the country girls go to places like Pattaya Beach to work in sex bars as dancers (etc.) to support the whole rest of the family back home in the country. Nobody in their right mind would declare that this is a fair and just world.

what else do you expect from a backward false religion? Islam is so full of lies that the only way they can protect themselves is to ban anything that goes against their false Prophet.......they will learn the truth when Christ returns

Best Answer

The pope at the time and the Catholic church killed people. Not Christianity. Religion is man seeking God. Christianity is God seeking man. Christ and his followers were as peaceful as possible.
