    3.5 hours this thread has been up on this board and not a single liberal has spoken out against this behavior? I promise if this had been an Obama bashing thread, 3 pages of liberal replies would have filled it already.

    This is REALLY spooky.
    Wow. Stop acting stupid.

    @ the OP: This type of behavior is really disgusting and immoral. It needs to be stopped.

    Why should they say anything? What is there to say? Is there something controversial about this, that you desperately need to know where liberals stand on it?

    These are subhumans. They come from a subhuman culture. They deserve to be burned off the face of the planet.

    For all of our supposed "moral outrage", we're not going to do anything about it. You're not going to do anything about it, our government's not going to do anything about it, and nobody is going to demand that our government do something about it. If nobody is going to do anything about it and we're all comfortable with the fact, then what is the point of saying anything about it?

    What is there to be said?

    Hey, maybe that Islamic law ain't so bad. Unless your gay, and then they hang you up by your crotch.

    I was curious as well...

    Since 1994, a Pakistani activist who founded the Progressive Women’s Association (pwaisbd.org) to help such women “has documented 7,800 cases of women who were deliberately burned, scalded or subjected to acid attacks, just in the Islamabad area. In only 2 percent of those cases was anyone convicted.”
    The link pwaisbd.org no longer seems to be the correct one, but they do have a facebook website:

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    How is female circumcision relevant to this thread, which is about a 14 year old raped, a Fatwa, and the next day that same 14 year old whipped to death for having the audacity to get raped. Reality check time dude.

    My point was rather obvious. This is not something that can be extrapolated out to Islam as a whole. I guess I should've expected that to go over your head.

    Was this 14 year old girl circumcised?

    You're "point" about Islam as a whole is a Strawman. No one is claiming this happens in all of Islam.
