That is disgusting! They are living in the past over there! They need to catch up and stop treating women like animals. Stuff like that really torques me off! Reminds of the Old Testament!

They didn't whip old ladies because they accepted bread from a man outside their family in the Old Testament.

What OT book are you reading. Once again you don't sound like you did much reading or research of the bible or any reading at all. You must have skimmed through the entire book.

Yeah but they did things just as bad such as killing children for making fun of a bald guy.

Once again your research and reading in the bible once again shows that you don't know what you are talking about. Bears killed the children. Maybe you should really read and research the bible so you will know what you are talking about.

Sooner or later I believe that conditions are going to change in Saudi Arabia because incidents such as this are so cruel and unreasonable that even the most devout muslims must feel that this is just going too far. And of course the situation described is nothing immoral or threatening to any religious belief. I've said it many times before on this forum, I find the religious police of the Saudi Arabian government to be some of the worst abusers of human rights in the world.
