    Re: A 16-year old girl buried alive in Turkey

    The father and grandfather of a Turkish teenager are to face trial for burying her alive because they were concerned that her friendship with boys had brought dishonour on their family.
    Buried alive?
    Oh that is so horrible
    Slightly surprised the article states it is spreading to cities.

    Right, because it makes sense to bar their entry based on the actions of one family?

    Some parts of the country certainly but not all of it. There are plenty of gay bars in many parts of Turkey. Its really strange reading about this sort of thing in Ankara as it feels like reading about a different country.

    and fathers who kill stepchildren because they've complicated the family or relationship too much.

    Our country definitely isn't pure in comparison - we're just as scummy but we're just use to our issues, at home.
    So.... a culture that deems it's ok to commit honor killings is just as good as a society that produces people who suffer psychosis and stepfathers who kill stepchildren? Just where is it written it's ok for stepfather's to kill their stepchildren? I'm unaware of that aspect of the us penal code. I'm also not sure about how ppd and ppp have anything to do with any people's culture, ours included.

    Not exactly mainstream though, unless you have evidence to the contrary?

    Re: A 16-year old girl buried alive in Turkey

    Many people tend to look at other people by using themselves as a standard.

    They automatically think that their values or attitudes are the norm everywhere and when things happen that go against their thoughts or beliefs they are shocked.

    Know this, your thoughts are your own and Cults like Islam around the world have a value system that go against the values on life that you my have.

    Turkey is in many ways still a 3rd world country, as are China and India in spite of their technological appearances to the outside world.

    In the western world we would council a child who we suspected was going down the wrong path, but in the mind set of a 3rd world country that allows Cults the same status as any other religion people feel it is okay to kill people because they dishonor the family name.

    I am sorry to report that tha attitude is rampant in the cult of Islam in this country as is shown in the actions of Muslims on a regular basis.

    The point here is that we tend to accept too many Cults as religions, and while this may seem to be an open minded tolerant way to be it extremely crazy to allow them to continue with the same status of a religion that teaches peace and love and "Do unto others."

    Tolerance is has gone too far and this action by the family is a perfect example.

    The father & mother in this case should be put to death andthe world should be told that the Cult of Islam is not a religion and needs to be band world wide before it creates problems that can't be dealt with without a Revolution that requires drastic action not unlike the failed crusades that started in 1095 and ended in 1271. Today we face a threat from this Cult that is real and threatens everything we believe and women should be more concerned that anyone else because they are on the front line to be subjugated by the cult of Islam.

    I used to think that Mormonism was just a another Christian religion until one of my daughters took back a cheating husband because the Mormon church told her she was meant to be with him because they were married in a Temple and they were meant to be together from birth and she should forgive his multiple cheatings and tke him back no matter what he did.

    Sorry but that is crazy and makes women less than the than men equal, and isn't it a tenant of the Liberals that woman and all people are equals and should be treated with respect etc.
