love and heretics

It's better to light a candle than curse the darkness

When rape becomes a charge of illecit sex outside of marriage?

::shudder::

Gali was using her laptop in the hotel’s staff bar when her drink was spiked. She awoke to a nightmare beyond belief: she had been savagely raped by three of her colleagues. Alone and frightened, she took herself to hospital. What Alicia didn’t know is that under the UAE’s strict sharia laws, if the perpetrator does not confess, a rape cannot be convicted without four adult Muslim male witnesses. She was charged with having illicit sex outside marriage, and thrown in a filthy jail cell for eight months.

  1. That’s just depressing!

  2. Ah, Islam. It boggles the mind that humans still allow it to be practiced openly.

  3. This is what a government ruled by religion looks like. Hope America stays far away from that.

      Damned if you do, damned if you don’t — is it better to be Christian, or under the Shariaists? Or would it be better yet to be under the rule of secular Law?

    • No, this is what a government ruled by Islam looks like. While I wouldn’t want it to be so, America under a Christian theocracy wouldn’t look much different from what it currently is…because, whether I like it or not, the foundation of American culture and law is of a Judeo-Christian nature.

  4. That Sharia is a whole lot of WTF.

    I had the displeasure of seeing a video this morning of a 17 year old (Muslim) girl stoned to death for loving a boy of the wrong religion. (No, i didn’t watch it the whole way through… it was sickening)

  5. That’s terrible!

      It could be your future …
