As moral equivalences go, the barbaric nature of those societies that take great pride in being the most faithful and observant of Muhammad's message, and therefore inflict mutilation and stoning as legal sentences to those they deem guilty or "deviant", is in no way worse than the "violent" nature of Western countries, particularly those Americans, their "obsession" with guns and the "impunity" many of their States grant them to shoot trespassers and home invaders.

Free and responsible citizens defending their life and property versus submissive mobs carrying, in the case of stoning, the totalitarian sentences of a bunch of backward clerics and little warlords, well, it's just, you know, different, but worse it is not, and who's up for another round of Latte?

I know what you think. There is no way anybody with half a working ethical fiber might buy into that, but let's just consider the argument valid for a minute. What could possibly be the answer?

Well, your mileage may vary, but as far as I'm concerned, I'd rather be shot by a free man than stoned to death by a bunch of slaves(1).
  1. Oh and, no Latte, I'll have a beer instead.

As I sit in a room with 2 rifles and a handgun I have no fear of being stoned to death, mutilated, or even castigated verbally by a pack of knee-crawling slaves. Be the Democrats,Muslims, or Socialist Utopians. And as for being shot by some gun obssessed yahoo, sorry, I don't make a habit of breaking into other's homes or stealing their property in any other way. So I am pretty sure I am safe from such a dire fate.

And others are safe from me, just don't break into my home, steal any of my property or attempt assault upon my son or wife.

Is that really that difficult a concept for people to wrap their empty, pointed heads around?

"I'd rather be shot by a free man than stoned to death by a bunch of slaves(1)."

"I'd rather be shot by a free man than stoned to death by a bunch of slaves"
Is that like: "I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy"?

Oh, well...in the latter, at least you have the chance of taking a couple of the slaves with you!

I doubt that anyone outside of the "peaceful" Islamic countries can equate being shot by a homeowner after breaking into a house with being stoned to death because you failed to wear a head scarf. Maybe I should have said any sane person rather than anyone.

I live in a state where the law is now (as of last year) if you feel you life is in danger, you can shoot someone no matter where you are. It's known as the "Stand Your Ground," law. It has the anti-gun people in a snit.

I see where a 19 year old woman in Saudia Arabia who was a victim of gang rape has been sentenced to 200 lashes and 6 months in jail for speaking out. She was initially sentenced to 90 lashes for being in a car with an unmarried male. Seeing how the "enlightened religion" of Islam works makes me realize that I couldn't care less what they think about our "Wild West" country.
