    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?
    I'm sure they wanted it. Remember the women are property thread?

    Who are you to criticize their free choices, choices that obviously make them happy? They're grown women, if they didn't want to be lashed, they would leave.

    See how this works? Isn't multiculturalism AWESOME?

    I understand that Bub, but non-Muslims pay a higher tax so that they are not under Sharia law. Thus, the lashings were illegal and oppressive on the Christians of Sudan.

    I think they need to send these ladies to Gitmo and let them smack the prinsoners around a bit.

    Lashing should be legal nowhere, but that's not really the question. Even if it was "legal", this law is totally stupid. You don't do that to people whose sole crime is to wear trousers. That's what I call "fundamentalism" (or extremism, I don't really see the difference), and that's what should disappear.

    Why go to Gitmo? I wish they could lash the testicles of the assholes who decided that wearing trousers was a crime
