Disclaimer: I don't believe stoning is an Islamic law.
Don't use stoning to justify an Iranian attack and your hatred for Iran. If people don't commit adultery, there wouldn't be any stoning, just like if
people don't commit robberies, they won't be in US prisons getting raped (probably in daily bases).
The question still remains, why do people give a damn about Iranian law? It is a law, just like any other law. Although Iran is trying to remove it,
hence they have made a legislation which calls for the banning of stoning, it is non of your business:
In 2008, Iran's judiciary scrapped stoning in draft legislation submitted to parliament for approval. As of June 2009, Iran's parliament has been
reviewing and revising the Islamic penal code to omit stoning.
Just like you say, it is non of their business, when they tell you that adultery has caused the fabric of society to collapse and kids are left with
major emotional strains due to family divisions:
In 2006, 12.9 million families in the U.S. were headed by a single-parent, 80% of which were headed by a female
It is non of their business when they claim you have murdered millions of babies over the years through abortions, mostly because of adultery:
It is non of their business when they say hundreds of thousands of your kids are born with absolutely no parents, and forced to go from home to home,
bringing negative psychological effect for the rest of their lives (not to mention the parents who left these kids, they will also be effected):
More than 420,000 children in the United States are in foster care, and more than 110,000 of them are waiting to be adopted. State adoption statutes
typically seek to achieve adoption for these children as promptly as possible, but some limit the pool of potential adoptive parents in one way or
Adultery has its negatives, for you to allow it doesn't give you any moral right to criticize the cruel punishment of stoning.
Don't use the stoning propaganda to effect you psychologically and make it easier for you to grasp any BS they spread about Iran.
What do you think>?
Is it legitimate to criticize Iran for a law they have implemented which in your mind is cruel, but in their mind is effective?
