14. Sentence a rape victim to death?
Edited on Tue Jun-28-05 05:32 PM by Kraklen
It's right there in the Bible.

Be-head someone for stealing? No, I think the punishment for stealing is having ones hands cut off. If he cares to cite an instance of the Taliban killing someone for stealing, I'd like to see it.

Destroyed churches? Sure, over the years thousands of black churches have been burned to the ground by Christian terrorists.

Practice oppression on women? That's the standard motive of Church groups like "The Promise Keepers."

Denying people education? The Creationist movement. Attempts to shut down public education. The Citadel. There's no shortage of examples.

The right to own property? Women owning property's a relative modern concept in American history, I believe. Turn of the century America wasn't that far removed from teh Taliban.
