    Man, theocracy sure does like "witch burnings".
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    You think that's a substantive response?

    The point may have gone well over your head but others may catch on. You can always ignore posts you don't understand.

    You made a non sequitur, straw man and red herring within the same post. Here is a shining example of statement like the one you made: You'd probably like it in Saudi Arabia, they have banned abortions, homosexuality and have arranged marriages.

    What does Islam have to do with peacefulness? You do know that there are predominately Christian countries where Protestants go around chopping down witches right? People only need one excuse to be savages. If Islam is the excuse the Saudis, a country where most of the population is still living in the 15th century, are using then it does nothing to determine whether Islam itself is peaceful or not.

    The U.S. shouldn't be making Saudi Arabia richer by doing business with it. Its human rights record is deplorable.

    The same is true all over the Middle East, and its no joke.

    Re: Saudi Arabia executes woman convicted of 'sorcery'

    The article seemed to suggest that they knew she was scamming people, and therefore not actually performing any magic. I am confused...

    The difference apparently didn't matter much to them. They killed her anyway and now she is dead.



    No man is an island,
    Entire of itself.
    Each is a piece of the continent,
    A part of the main.
    If a clod be washed away by the sea,
    Europe is the less.
    As well as if a promontory were.
    As well as if a manner of thine own
    Or of thine friend's were.
    Each man's death diminishes me,
    For I am involved in mankind.
    Therefore, send not to know
    For whom the bell tolls,
    It tolls for thee.

    Donne
