Not All Cultures Are Equal

No, really, they\’re not:

Eight women and one man convicted of adultery are set to be stoned to death in Iran, according to activists and lawyers.

Shadi Sadr, a lawyer and women\’s rights activist, said the nine were convicted of adultery in separate cases in different Iranian cities.

"Their verdicts are approved, and they may be executed at any time," she said, adding that trial protocol was not applied properly in the cases.

Six of the nine were convicted based solely on judges\’ decisions with no witnesses or the presence of their lawyers during their confessions, she said.

Don\’t forget, this is the country that Jaqui Smith, our own dear Home Secretary, said that gays can be deported to, they\’ll be safe as long as they don\’t "advertise".
