Well look at it this waymno matter if religion was banned, they would find ways of creatng new conflicts if not over religion,then over culture differences.
Babaric acts like this has been carried out by humanity for decades. Just a pitty in this day and age, it continues,history repeats itself. We as humans never learn from our mistakes from the past.

Are you saying this is cultural norm in the western world? How many people would agree with it if you were asking random people on the street? 0.01% perhaps?
Also there is a big difference in killing someone for snitching if you are a criminal (since it directly endangers you), and stoning teenagers for victimless "crime" of adultery.
Thats simply not true:
If you dont believe Pew Global, try to read some big islamic forums on teh internetz (sunniforum.com). Stoning people for adultery and death penalty for insulting Muhhamad is almost universally accepted there. Even from the video in the OP it was obvious that everyone agreed with the stoning.
I used to be like you, left-winger thinking that extremists are only tiny universally condemned minority among the muslim population, just like politically correct MSM preached. But then I actually researched the topic from independent sources.
Only actual terrorists are very tiny minority. But extremist opinions are neverthless very widespread, so is quiet terrorism support.
edit on 30/1/11 by Maslo because: (no reason given)
Yup, I actually know, because I have been to prison, and I have been around the gangsta culture since I live in a poor neighborhood.
You should stop watching TV from your big mansion and go outside so you can learn about the different cultures your own country has.
Are you saying stoning a snitch to death is OK? Is that what the action movies have thought you?
You know Maslo, if stoning was Universally agreed you would see it much more often, and much more often on TV because culturally, such punishments should be broadcast hence that's why it is done in public.

A Prayer (In Memory of the Murdered Woman and Man in the Video)
Oh One God of Love and Light, who brings to us the human being this opportunity that is life itself, and who gives rise to and governs, by Love, the whole of the creation and of all that ever was, is, and is to come - have mercy upon us your human creation, concieved as we were in Your eternal mind and heart, to fulfill your promise, your hope and your destiny - we love you too in our innermost hearts and minds and hereby give thanks for your love, your light and your life.
We, who have born witness to your eternal glories, now stand here on the cusp of the dawning of a new age, an age of reason and of spirit, and of mutual understanding - but oh God of truth and mercy, we now fall at your very feet shedding seemingly unending tears of grief and sorrow, as we also bear witness to unspeakable horrors in our very midst, and in yours, acts of depravity and ignorance and insanity, including those acts committed falsely and with evil at heart in the name of "religion", acts by our fellow man in other parts of the world which we cannot turn a blind eye to since we all share the same ground of being and becoming and breathe the same air - that wrench our hearts and hurt us all very deeply to the core.
Please help us now, oh God of light and love in eternity while making Your Power, Your Glory, Your Justice and Your Mercy manifest here on Earth, and fill the whole Earth, in whatever way however fast or slow by your eternal and perfect will Who is even today willing all things to the good and the loving for the sake of one and all both on Earth and in Heaven as well. May your loving will oh God of hope, God of possibility, God of Life and Love persist, unrelentingly, penetrating the hearts of men and women the whole world over, in eternal persuit of the one lost sheep so that not one will be lost, or until at the very least every human being alive has been touched by Your gentle Hand and gazed upon lovingly under your all seeing eye that never sleeps, and unto which there is nothing under the sun now hidden, which will not be made known and brought to light.
Please help us God, to become, as an emerging Global Society, that creative realization which you intended for us all, as your very children the whole world over - from before the very foundations of the Earth.
Let Thy Perfect Will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.
"Blessed are those who mourn."
Oh God how we mourn today and at this moment in human history and in eternity - for the two young people who were murdered in the video, and for the entire human condition who falls woefully short of Thy Will, so much so in some cases, as to fall into the pit of the lowest depths of depravity and separation from your Love imaginable. Oh God have mercy on us all! We know we've failed you, failed your Love, your promise and your hope for us, please God shine your light and truth into the hearts and minds of us all, including our enemies, so that these things might pass away and fall into the abyss, while makind walks freed for the sake of freedom, to freely love as we are loved by God, into a world where our committment to you as the spirit of Love, is reflected in all our love for one another. Amen.
