"Religion of Peace", my ass

From the Seattle Post-Intelligencer; (Emphasis mine) Saudi court sentences 75-year-old woman to lashes

CAIRO -- A 75-year-old widow in Saudi Arabia has been sentenced to 40 lashes and four months in jail for mingling with two young men who are not close relatives, drawing new criticism for the kingdom's ultraconservative religious police and judiciary.

The newspaper Al-Watan said the woman met with the two 24-year-old men last April after she asked them to bring her five loaves of bread at her home in al-Chamil, a city north of the capital, Riyadh.

Ah yes, the religion of peace and love strikes agaain. Maybe we could make a cartoon about this...No that might make them want to burn, kill, and mangle the cartoon writers who think they are not a religion of peace and love.

When will people stop treating this so called religion as something that can not be attacked for what it is.
