    Perhaps you should post the information that you're responding to so there is no confusion.

    I hate to tell you, but this country was founded on Liberalism. I'm not saying that it's the answer to everything, because it isn't. A good part of it is just too idealist and unrealistic to me. There has to be a good balance.

    Several Sudanese women have been flogged as a punishment for dressing "indecently", according to a local journalist who was arrested with them.

    Lubna Ahmed al-Hussein, who says she is facing 40 lashes, said she and 12 other women wearing trousers were arrested in a restaurant in the capital, Khartoum.

    Disgusting.

    Not the Liberalism we know today.

    Which is exactly what I was talking about in an earlier post. Of course it's not the Liberalism we know today because Liberalism is always changing and progressing.

    Man, Islam really knows how to treat a lady. Now, if the laws of Sudan are as mentioned, will this create further tension between the Chritian South and Islamic North?
    ... and this is yet ANOTHER reason to keep religion and government separate. It does no good whatsoever for either institution.

    Perhaps. But the thread was about women in Sudan being lashed for trousers as it is against their religious laws, and my comment was about theocracy; so it seemed pretty clear that what I said had nothing to do with this country's liberalism.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    I understand your point bro, but I do not think that there are people here that actually side with the Islamic terrorists. I have heard people express some understanding for ME hate of the U.S. for some of the dealings we have done there in the past, but never agree with the terrorism.

    Please stop your hyper-partisan trolling. If you wish to bash Liberalism, which has nothing to do with this OP, then start your own thread.

    Ok...so...who are these women? What were they doing there? Did they need papers of any kind to cross the boarder? What are the laws in question, both the dress code and the foreigner exception?

    This article did a rather pisspoor job of reporting the facts.
