2 Men Stoned To Death In Iran, 3rd Escapes

One of the Left’s favorite countries, who they keep telling us do not do barbaric things like stonings, uh, well, does

TEHRAN, Iran – Two men convicted of adultery were stoned to death in northeastern Iran last month but a third convicted man managed to escape, Iran’s judiciary spokesman said Tuesday.

Ali Reza Jamshidi said the stoning took place in the city of Mashhad in late December but did not provide the names of the convicted men.

Under Iran’s Islamic law, adultery is punishable by stoning, but such sentences are rare. International human rights groups have long criticized stoning in Iran as a cruel form of punishment.

Under Islamic law, the third guy who escaped is free now. There is no comment from the other two. Maybe Obama could reconsider his “no preconditions” pledge now? Doubtful.

    Stoning is also demanded for adultery in the Christian bible.

  2. What’s with the ant-Christianity kick, John? Besides, notice that it is NOT Christians stoning people. Can you list the last time that happened?

    Just trying to be fair and unbiased Teach. Showing that such punishment is “approved” for that crime. As far as being anti-Christian you misread me. I am merely trying to show that there are many similarities in the Bible and the Koran. And the grave danger in considering EITHER to be the unimpeachable word of God, especially when considering capital punishment.
