A sign of things to come? Indonesia is often held up as being a shining example of “moderate” Islam. Yet, here we find the real Islam inevitably taking over, as it always does whenever more civilized people let their guards down.
It’s hard to believe we live on a planet with such savagery. Insulting, actually.
The parliament of Indonesia’s religiously devout and semi-autonomous Muslim province of Aceh on Monday passed a law that imposes the punishment of stoning adulterers to death.
The new law based on the Koran and the hadith also imposes the punishment of lashing women who commit pre-marital sex 100 times as well as criminalizes drinking alcohol, gambling, rape, pedophilia and homesexuality.
