Is Iranian culture really more barbaric than American?


I don't know. I do know, however, that I refuse to paralyzed by relativism when I see something so undeniably fucked up as this.


I don't have to live in a perfect society to recognize that stoning someone to death as a punishment for having a child out of wedlock is something that has no place in the civilized world. My government's criminal justice system may be flawed, but those flaws do not change the nature of this horrific act one bit.
