While well written, the abyss of ignorance this commenter resides in leads me to believe that we have reached a tipping point in what is morally right and morally wrong. When you cannot distinguish between the two it is a telling sign of the state of, and where our society is going as a whole.

You guys are so full of it. If we whipped Atlanta's animan gangbangers, burglars and forgers like this you would be all for it. Mention Taliban and suddenly, oh, it's a travesty. They are savages.

I would personally like to see gangbangers , burglars, forgers, bad check writers, politicians, and thieves all beaten on street corners. They did something wrong.
Saying "No" to a Taliban commander and his offer of marriage is not a flogging offense.
As perplexed as I was about this delusional comment I figured there was no way I could respond without rudeness and callousness (See above).
I figured one of my fellow Bloggers could offer up a tactful counterpoint that the commenter could understand and would (well maybe) alleviate all ignorance.
I got my wish as as Sig94 stepped up to the plate and knocked it out of the park.
The idiot who wrote the comment above this one does not seem to realize that beatings used to be directed towards offenders right here in America. This practice has disappeared centuries ago. Personally I feel it is a much more effective tool (both in cost and behavior modification) than prison and/or therapy. Getting your ass beat is a meal that sticks to your ribs, so to speak.
That being said, it is not the beating so much that raises our collective blood pressure, but the reason for it. Shaia law is an abomination. This girl was beaten like an animal because she allegedly committed adultery. I find that hard hard to believe because she would have been beheaded. Other information indicates that she refused to marry a Taliban commander.
And you put her into the same category as gangbangers and burglars? Someone hold the lantern steady whilst wunderkind msmarr attempts to dig his head out of his arse.
Thank you Sig94.
