Religion of Mercy

This is the Picture of the Week at And before any Leftists™ out there try to draw a parallel with capital punishment in the U.S., this is the required punishment for adultery and very many other "crimes" in Islam. It is a function of the religion.

From This Week in Islam for 1/01/06
This week’s "Picture of the Week" was inspired by, a Website run by Nadir Ahmed, the so-called Muslim apologist with a penchant for self-promotion. To support the claim that "Christian morality" is inferior to "Muslim morality" Nadir’s Morality Debate page is decorated with contrasting photos that show flowers and a soft drawing of a hijab (sans female) beneath the Qur’an while images of decadence appear beneath the Bible.

Rigging the "debate" in this fashion is about the only way that Islam can win such an argument. It's also the same formula for survival that's laid out in the Qur'an and practiced in Muslim countries, where critical opposition to Islam is strictly forbidden and the penalty for converting to another religion is death. In other words, Islam survives by suppressing freedom of thought and expression with brute force.

Although Western debauchery is nothing to be proud of, it is unsanctioned by Western religion and is therefore immaterial to the point that Nadir Ahmad is trying to make. He is disingenuous about the fact that culture can exist independently of religion outside the Muslim world. To counter this deception, we offer a picture of a woman who is about to be stoned to death for adultery in accordance with Sharia by the religious leaders of Iran. While stonings are rare in the Islamic world, honor killings, regrettably, are not. We aren’t sure how much Western fornication it takes to outweigh even a single honor killing, but we don’t expect "ExamineTheTruth" to do the math for us anytime soon.
Make no mistake, as the Islamic civilizational cancer spreads, shari'a will spread with it.

Apostates of Islam has more information on stoning and on the tender mercies of Islam.

"Merciful" or "have mercy"? includes a link to a video of a stoning in Iran.
Stoning to death is a cruel insane Islamic punishment given to people who are married but still voluntarily have sex outside marriage. This punishment was ordered by the "merciful" Prophet, who of course was the messenger of the "merciful" Allah.

Many hadith, including Sahih Bukhari give proof that Stoning was ordered and practiced by Muhammed, for example:
Volume 2, Book 23, Number 413:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar :
The Jew brought to the Prophet a man and a woman from amongst them who have committed (adultery) illegal sexual intercourse. He ordered both of them to be stoned (to death), near the place of offering the funeral prayers beside the mosque."

As to the relative morality of Islam vs. Christianity, in Christianity martyrs [Read this link, it is worthy of its own post. - ed.] do not become martyrs during acts of mass murder.
