    Thank you, SgtRock. If it were not for your numerous threads reminding me that honor killings occur in certain parts of the world, I might forget.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Education is a good start, I would think.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    One of those countries being the good old USA.

    This will no doubt draw a few comments.
    But remember this, the USA does not reward it's female workers (in every comparable job) with the same pay rates as it rewards male workers.
    Please tell me you are not trying to compare a disparity in wages to hacking a woman to death with an axe.

    I think we should talk about it. Or we should donate to organizations that fight for human rights. There are many organizations that are working to change things.

    We also must do are part by discussing honour killings and human rights abusses. Think about it, there are people that believe that they are protecting thier family honor by brutally killing their daughter for bringing shame to the family by being raped. When a family kills one of there own it is not protecting the family honour. It is a cowardly and shameful act.

    My only problem is how do you tell someone "your tradition is wrong, mine is right"?

    Its nice to know you care. And besides we can't have you going through life in your own little utopia ignoring the real world.

    When I see you publishing threads about every murder story that comes across the wire, I'll take your headlines a little more seriously. In the mean time, you're being selective enough that you're less a font of information and more a broken record.

    Aside from that, I've got a fairly good understanding of the subject, at least enough so that a new thread on each and every instance isn't going to teach me anything. I'm sure there are many others on this forum who fall into the same category, in terms of familiarity with the subject.

    How about beating the drums on a new subject for a change?

    Its simple, any tradition that involves stabbing, shooting, strangling, hacking to death, decapitation, setting on fire, beating to death, or spraying acid in the face of a family member or any one for that matter is wrong. If you don't have the moral clarity to stand up for what is right then maybe you should do some reflecting. Take time to think about the difference between right and wrong and apply it to yourself. In other words man up (or woman up) and stand for something.

    Honour killings are wrong and they have been wrong for thousands of years.

    Well, for starters, you sure as **** don't root your argument in your own traditions, otherwise you lose right out of the starting gate because your traditions are not their traditions.

    I keep trying to explain this to the thumpers who think they can win me over with the Bible. They keep failing to take my advice, fancy that.
