According to the Toronto Sun, a Muslim cleric said that gays, adulterers and sinners can benefit from being stoned to death:
The sheikh explained that a Muslim who is sentenced to death by stoning under Sharia law actually benefits from this gruesome punishment as his or her soul is being purified even as the stones rain down on their sinful head.
And this wasn’t just any Muslim. This guy has some clout in the Muslim community:
This from a man who serves as both president of the Islamic Forum of Canada and vice-president of the Islamic Council of Imams of Canada.
This is the sort of thing that happens when your brain is pickled by ancient mythological nonsense. You can actually condone and justify stoning someone to death for being a ‘sinner’.
I’ve watched videos where people have been stoned to death. It isn’t pretty and it isn’t fast. It’s gruesome and horrific. It would bring anyone with an once of empathy to tears. To condone this sort of behavior for any reason is inhumane and ghastly. To think that this guy has any sort of power whatsoever is alarming to say the least.
People often wonder why some atheists criticize religion and religious dogma so harshly, and this is part of the reason why. This kind of crap is dangerous. It definitely shows what can happen once you accept ancient texts as being holy, even though many believers just ignore the immoral, cruel parts of their ancient mythology, and try to focus on the warm and fuzzy stuff.
No, Sheikh Faisal Hamid Abdur-Razak, nobody benefits from being stoned. Neither the person being stoned, nor the animals doing the stoning benefit. You should be ashamed of yourself for even trying to justify such a thing. You call your religion ‘the religion of peace’ and then spout this horrific bullshit.
