As barbaric as it is no doubt ..that's our perspective ..
That's what different cultures are all about .. our culture and lifestyle is not the universal norm ..and we have our own fair share of barbarism as well ..manifesting in different ways ..
For them .. it's a normal outcome .. they've been at it for a long long time ..they grew up in that lifestyle and know the consequences ..

If we can't accept and respect differences between our own species .. how would we ever accept any drastic differences from an extra terrestrial species ..should they land tomorrow ..

So you think it is ok to stone a pregnant woman to death?
good job leaving out details and circumstances. This is only an issue because stones were involved. Bet if she was shot this wouldn't have made the news.

There may be some places indeed. However, I can post many articles that report the killing of Christians in Muslim countries if I need to. They were killed specifically for their beliefs.

I don't understand how you can sit here and justify this (unless you agree with it).

This is a disgusting human rights violation and has nothing to do with "culture" or the way a society treats pregnancy outside of marriage. The pig father didn't receive enough money from the daughter's would-be husband, so he hid behind his religion and called it an "honor killing." IMO, anyone who justifies this type of behavior isn't much different in my eyes, kind of like all the people who just sat around and watched this go on (including the girl's fiancé! Disgusting.)

I don't care about differences in cultures.



Oh please, you took a specific line from a paragraph I wrote and spun it. What BS game are you playing. I said regardless of culture no one has an excuse to hurt other people for making personal decisions. It's no different that hurting a gay person for their sexual preference. It's ignorant and those people should be respected and protected. You are out of line, and you know it.


That was the punch line .. that's why you got nailed on it ..
people hurt other people every day ..every second ..in every place ..and in every way! .. are you going to disassociate yourself from everyone .. then include yourself as well ..
Killing a pregnant woman with a drone strike is no different from stoning her to death ..the end result is still death ..
Every culture is different and should be respected and accepted.. no matter how different ..
There is beauty and barbarism in every religion and culture ..whichever way you slice it ..

As long as they doing it way over there...it's all good .. that's how they do things in their land ..the ways of every land must be respected ..i.e. they can not come over to America and do that ..they'd get fried ..

BS..either way it was a honour killing of a pregnant woman.stones or guns doesn't matter.
Are you going to answer what I have asked you or are we going to take it that you agree with stoning a pregnant woman to death because she married a man she loved.
What details or circumstances make this right and just in any civilized country?.

Be a man and tell us what you believe and stop dodging questions eh?.

then you MUST respect how other cultures deal with pregnancy outside of marriage. Its their thing. Stay out of it.


Hell no. Taking an innocent pregnant girl and stoning her to death because of bassackwards religious beliefs deserves NO RESPECT. Just the fact that you think it should be respected is awful.
We'll call it what it is ... disgusting.

United Nations Declaration of Human Rights

Article 16.

(1) Men and women of full age, without any limitation due to race, nationality or religion, have the right to marry and to found a family. They are entitled to equal rights as to marriage, during marriage and at its dissolution.

Article 18.

Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.

Article 19.

Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.


List of countries that signed the Declaration
Pakistan signed it. They admit the woman had a BASIC HUMAN RIGHT to marry who ever she wished; to have a family as she wished; to leave her religion if she wished; and to express herself and her opinion as she wished.

Some Islamic countries had a melt down that women would actually have their basic human rights acknowledged and legally guaranteed, so they came up with their own alternate version. It incorporates Sharia law, which of course means that no one gets their basic human rights at all. It's all taken away. Found here . It's like an shadowy evil twin to the United Nations document .. really takes away basic equal rights instead of affirms them.

Nope. I'm not going to respect and accept a culture based on outdated religious nonsense that says an innocent pregnant woman can be slaughtered by her family and neighbors with rocks simply for exercising her basic human right of loving and procreating. That is NOT worthy of respecting and no one should accept that kind of thing happening. Call it what it is ... barbaric. (I already gave the definition of 'barbaric' ... and this fits)

What kind of person can murder one of their own family members?


Religious conservatives, but they don't just kill their own family members, anyone's fair game. How many people do our conservatives kill through war, pollution, etc?



Way to make everything about your own political agenda. Sounds like typical liberal finger pointing and outright lying. Didn't the current POS say "I'm good at killing people"? Isn't it a Democrat in office wanting to use drone strikes on US citizens? The answer to both is yes and you are a shill.

This story shows the true face of Islam. Islam encourages lying to outsiders about Islam. Their biggest and most repeated lie is "Islam is a religion of peace". Islam is a religion of violence,ignorance,bigotry, and misogyny. As demonstrated in real life, their words are hollow meaningless lies.

I take it that the fact that skorp has not clarified his position on this tragic event tells us that he does agree with it.

then you will understand when I say I dont respect a culture that celebrates homosexuality, abortion, pornography, mass shootings, blasphemy, fornication, antichristianity, invasions, murder, nuclear warfare etc.

Many people are using this thread to their advantage to bash a culture.

1) This is not norm.



Stonings in public settings, however, are extremely rare




2) This happened in rural areas, where poor has not much rights, similiar to Homeless getting killed inour western spciety for sports.



3) This is not "its their culture" and they "condone it"


Her father was promptly arrested on murder charges, police investigator Rana Mujahid said, adding that police were working to apprehend all those who participated in this "heinous crime."



4) Its was not men subjugating women, since there are women who joined in on the crime.

Homosexuality

nothing wrong with it

Abortion

isn't 'celebrated'

Pornography

is legal, if you don't like it then don't look at it

mass shootings

few and far between compared with Islamic countries

blasphemy

5/6 of the planet considers you a blasphemer.

fornication,

What two consenting adults do in the privacy of their own bedroom is no ones business

antichristianity,

Dude ... YOU are anti-christian. YOU said you can't wait for it to die.

invasions,

Yep. Outright invasions.

murder

Like the pregnant Pakistani girl murdered ... your Muslim countries murder all the time.

nuclear warfare etc.

USA dropped the bomb twice ... in defense against the aggressor (Japan) ... to save American lives on the battlefield.

Again your deflections fail. Your lack of severe judgement against the murderers of this poor innocent pregnant girl speaks volumes. And your calls to respect the murder .... that says a lot.

I couldn't have said it better myself.

This is beyond tragic. For all the people claiming things like "If she was shot I bet there wouldn't be a news story" You're probably right.

There isn't much pain involved when someone shoots you in the head. I'm guessing there is quit a bit of agony having rocks and bricks thrown at you until death.

All because you can't chose who you want to marry? Yeah, that sounds logical.

If someone is found to harm their own family here in the states, they are nearly instantly deemed with a mental illness and taken into custody as "criminally insane".

I think the entire Islamic faith is "criminally insane" and should be treated as such.

Actually the excuse for the murder was given that it's their culture and it should be respected. That came from the Muslim on the board. He said it. The response was ... any culture that stones to death a pregnant woman simply because she wanted to get married to someone outside the religion ... that's not a culture worthy of respect and yes, I'll bash the hell out of it.

No you have not here I will ask you again.

1) do you agree with what happened in Pakistan?
2) Do you think the family was right to stoning her.
3) Do you agree with stoning?.
4) I want to know If you live in the west?
5) If so why when it gives you freedom to do many things a theocratic country would not allow you to do so why bash it?.

You have not answered anything I have written just dodged around them...yes or no answers will be fine.

But that would be picking something they do as norm. I mean, what if a culture that does not kill intruders that invade people's homes? but in america its norm to shoot kill an intruder.

Should people bash all Americans because they kill intruders? where as some culture doe snot kill even if the person is there to steal?

Its the perspective of what is right and what is wrong.... according to their culture, not ours.

For them, marrying or having pre-marital relationship is one of the ultimate sins?
