Absolute barbarity. I think massive organized protests at the Iranian embassy are a good idea, but I'm afraid nothing will change until the theocracy of Iran is demolished internally.

As long as this current regime is supported by the people, nothing can be done.

Whatever happened to banishment? Send the kids to the U.S. - why kill them?

Makes me want to go give more money to Amnesty International.

And if you think the U.S. would take them, I have a bridge to sell you. Several in fact, along with a deed for some ocean front property in Tennesee.

For something like this, I'd imagine the support for political asylum would be pretty strong.

You have more faith in this country then I do, my guess is most people in are government would figure they deserve what they get, proper retribution for sin or some such

This world will never have peace as long as organised religion persists.

Or, more specifically, theocracies.

You'll find organised religion has a way of turning supposed secular governments into theocracies. Take, for example, the United States.

Please don't lump UU's together with radical right-wing Christian nutjobs, thank you.

UU's are nice people in general. I think though if they grew to the size and prominance of the Roman Catholic church, they would succumb to the same realities of politics and power that have basically wrecked every state or religion created with proper ideals in mind. It has become apparent to me that whenever you give a small group of people power over many, abuse will always occure, and religions are no different then states in that reguard. Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely, be you pope, president, or emperor.

Well duh, yeah, if you're going to extrapolate it out to an extreme, but when you say "all organized religions are evil" excuse me if I take offense.

Allow me to refraise; The self-serving, self-rightious, greedy, uncompromising, oppressive, hypocritical, immoral, indecent, and abomonable organisation of bloodsucking fucktards, of your choice.

I sent out emails complaining to BBC, CBC, & CNN about not publishing this story.

I'll be shocked if that goes anywhere, but I applaud your efforts.

I'm rather surprised that it's not on the CBC website.

Yeah, I just read that story on PlanetOut via my Yahoo news feed. Where is the global outrage? Where is the (mainstream) press? How terribly awful and depressing... :(

It's amazing how far we get in technology and in human comprehention but STILL want to kill anything that isn't just like everyone else.

Thanks for that. I'm glad it's not being ignored.
