Afghanistan: Stoning For Adulterers May Be Reinstated

In the paragon of modern civilization known as Afghanistan, President Karzai and the gang are bringin’ back the stonings:

Against public outcry (both inside and outside of Afghanistan) governmental representatives for the country are considering reinstating a punishment that many would like to see relegated to the history books under topics such as “cruel and unusual punishments” and “tortures of the past” in spite of the fact that other countries practice these forms of punishment. Afghanistan is now reviewing propositions to bring stoning back as a form of punishment for adulterers.

According to the Asia director for Human Rights Watch, Brad Adams, “It is absolutely shocking that 12 years after the fall of the Taliban government, the Karzai administration might bring back stoning as a punishment.”

Aren’t you glad thousands of our men and women died for this?
