There Is No Morality Without Religion

posted by on November 5 at 8:25 AM


The United Nations said Tuesday that a Somali stoned to death by Islamist militants after she had been accused of adultery was a 13-year-old girl who had been raped while visiting her grandmother.

In the first such public killing by the militants in about two years, she was placed in a hole and stoned to death on Oct. 28 in a rebel-held port city, Kismayu, in front of a crowd, after local leaders said she was guilty under Shariah, the legal code of Islam based on the Koran.

ugh... Now, more than ever is the UNITED States of America needed to regain its political and moral leadership of the world. So many of our fellow humans live in darkness. Its a struggle worth our national will.

I bet the stone throwers were joined by gleeful Mormons, too.

Do you think we should withdraw immediately from Iraq and the middle east?

Religion is dangerous.

if anyone has a good solution for somalia, other than taking all their women away to amurka, please raise your hands.

bailo, yes. our presence there inflames, rather than liberalizes them. we don't make things "better" by being there, we inspire a radical resistance. watch anything besides fox news and you'd see that, you tool.

Woah. Buzzkill.

Nothing like a stoning to remind me how much work there is to do.

Religion poisons EVERYTHING.
