10. Majority of Egyptians support chopping off the hand of a thief in recent poll.

 

This is shariah law for stealing a quarter of a dinar or an egg.

I guess that's okay, huh? After all, the starving person had it coming. Who are we to question the majority? Cruel and unusual punishment is all in the eye of the beholder. There's no need for judicial review, huh? And while we're at it, if a majority vote that the Moon is made of Swiss cheese, then it is.

And while we're at it, since Morsi took over, Egyptian women have been under increasing assault from mobs who think they can get away with it under Islamic rules. I guess that's okay too, right? After all. Majority rules, right? This was a problem in Egypt long before Morsi, but it seems to have gotten worse since he rose to power. Oh well. Can't argue with the majority, now can we?
