So, everyone knows about the poor Saudi who is going to get 200 lashes and 6 months in jail for being raped and then having the temerity to speak out about the case.

Well, that's what happens when you all bronze age thinking to dominate your society. According to the Saudi Rulers and the clerics, she committed a SIN.

The sad thing is SIN does not exist. Religious leaders and others in authority have used SIN for centuries to control the masses. SIN should be defined as something Those in Power dislike.

The problem arises because throughout all ures some behaviors, and Theft for example, are universally prohibited. While others, eating pork or refraining from using a high, luxurious bed are not. That is because basic morality preceeded religion by thousands of years.

This is why Authoritarians have always flocked (groan) to religion. Religion allows them to impose their views upon others and to deflect all criticism by pointing to a holy book or tablet.

But, what do I know? As the Next United Statesian President Mike Huckabee keenly pointed out, "Science changes with every generation and with new discoveries and GOD doesn't."

Thinkprogress is so awesome I have to link the phone call from God, Mike Huckabee received in 2004. There is no stronger evidence GOD is on the side of the Republicans. If anyone out there is thinking of not voting for Huckabee you'd better reconsider voting against GOD!
