Islam’s Concept of ‘Honor’

…just gets more ‘HORRIFIC’.

A Kurdish woman was brutally raped, stamped on and strangled by members of her family and their friends in an “honor killing” carried out at her London home because she had fallen in love with the wrong man.
Banaz Mahmod, 20, was subjected to the 2-1/2 hour ordeal before she was garroted with a bootlace. Her body was stuffed into a suitcase and taken about 100 miles to Birmingham where it was buried in the back garden of a house.

How convenient to have your religion excuse every manner of inhuman perversion. Sweet Mary, Mother of God/Baby Jesus/God the Father (none of whom, incidentally, require this sort of thing)…is there no end to this?

    I read about this……yet again, the barbarians are pounding on the door.

    Ugh. Words fail. The first British politician to campaign on reviving the death penalty could be in Downing Street the next day: why does it require “courage” to do something that would be staggeringly popular?

  3. It’s so frickin’ heartbreaking.
