Indonesia's Aceh to allow stoning for adulterers
From NPR.org

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=11...

Lawmakers in a devoutly Muslim Indonesian province voted unanimously that adulterers can be sentenced to death by stoning, just months after voters overwhelmingly chose to throw conservative Islamic parties out of power.

With only weeks to go before a new government led by a moderate party takes over in Aceh province, hard-liners still in control of the regional parliament pushed through legislation Monday to impose steep punishments for adultery and homosexuality.

{ snip }

The new Indonesian law also imposes tough sentences and fines, to be paid in kilograms of gold, for rape and pedophilia, but the most hotly disputed article was on adultery and states that offenders can be punished by a minimum of 100 lashings and a maximum of stoning to death.

It also imposes severe prison terms for other behavior considered morally unacceptable, including homosexuality, which will be punishable by public lashings and more than eight years in prison.

{ snip }

-----------------------------------------------

Hopefully the more moderate government will reverse this before the fundies destroy lives with their barbarism.

3. Only if the offender is a woman
'Course i'm sure there's loopholes in THIS crap to get the man out easily enough and leave the woman eating rocks.

5. "Indonesia's Aceh to allow aldulterers to get stoned"
I like the sounds of that one better. Sort of gives the adulterer an option, depending on how he wants to read it.
