This is why religion must no longer exist...
CNN - Karzai: Afghan rape victim free to decide if she wants to stay in prison

An Afghan woman imprisoned for adultery after a relative raped her is free to decide whether she wants to go home or remain in detention for her safety, President Hamid Karzai said Thursday.

Karzai said he's asked the justice minister to meet with the woman and her rapist to find out whether she wants to marry him and legitimize her daughter.

(Full Story: http://www.cnn.com/2011/12/01/world/asia/afghanistan-ra... )



The world is full of backwards thinking like this from forcing a woman who is raped to have that child to ironing womens breasts and genetalia to murdering people who do not believe in your "god".

I am a man who understands that women hold the key to the successful future of mankind. One because that they carry and nurture every child on the planet and provide a much more balanced, thought out approach to most things, unlike the blow-hards in Washington and the "boys" that run the backwards religiously-run countries.

The future of the world depends on everyone dumping the superstitious beliefs that hold us back, women back and hold back the entire planet.

I "pray" for the day that religion ends.

2. We as a nation should offer automatic asylum and citizenship for people in these situations.
What a great chance to show the world we stand for religious tolerance.

5. Who's gonna offer us asylum?
When the Dominionists finally get "voted" in because they promise to keep their Authoritarian followers "safe", who do WE run to for safety?

8. Except we don't...
otherwise, why would S Dakota ban all abortion, including if the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest? Why would birth control and sex education be denied to so many American women? Why is there a religious war on women going on in Congress, which is supposed to be secular?

I think some of the whack-job fundie Xians in this country actually envy the Taliban and the Saudis in how they get away with oppressing women.

4. That is so farked up
But I'm sure it makes perfect sense to religious people.

"The truths of religion are never so well understood as by those who have lost the power of reason." Voltaire

6. Ahhh, "FREEDOM".
Edited on Thu Dec-01-11 08:18 PM by BiggJawn
"Freedom" to go home, and be murdered by her male relatives because they think she made their pee-pees look small.

"Freedom" to stay in prison where the previously-mentioned male relatives can't get at her.

"Freedom" to MARRY her rapist, thus restoring her male relatives pee-pees to their former (still small) size.

And thousands of our kids died for **THIS**???

Like I've always said, that crook Karzai is only mayor of Kabul, and of that, only about 6 blocks and a safe corridor to the airport. But Rumsferatu liked him...

7. I almost couldn't read this...
I was so dumb founded by the first sentence. Unfortunately, we will never see the end of religion- it is a source of comfort for the stupid, and the stupid procreate too quickly.
