The Moral Equivalency Between Christianity and Islam: Stoning

To those who would suggest a moral equivalency exists between Christianity and Islam, I challenge:

Once a man lived who witnessed a woman to be stoned for adultery. He admonished the blood frenzied crowd by saying, "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone."

Then consider the barbaric creatures, like those in this video, who routinely practice this form of murder for that very crime. They do so because the prophet wills it. As Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Majahid suggests, "Anyone who knows about Islam knows that stoning is in the Koran, and that it is Islamic law. There are people who call it inhuman - but in doing so they insult the Prophet."

According to the Life of Muhammad:
"To test Muhammad, the rabbis sent to him a married man and a married Jewish woman who had committed adultery together. "If he condemns them to the tajah(whereby the criminals are lashed with a rope of date fibres dipped in resin)then obey him, for he is a prince. But if he condemns them to be stoned, he is a Prophet and be on your guard against him."23 The Holy Prophet ordered the pair to be stoned: the man bent over his mistress to protect her from the stones, but they were both killed."
If you can still believe a moral equivalency exists between the two faiths' foundational principles, I would assert that you are devoid of reason.

  1. Of course, you choose to ignore the dozens if not hundreds of stonings in the old testament.. kids were supposed to be stoned for being *gasp* disobedient!

    And talk about some real schmucks, those rabbis sent that couple to their death. Gotta love those religious a$$holes.

  2. If you can find verifiable examples of such texts being used to religiously sanctify stonings in contemporary Jewish or Christian societies, your reference to the Old Testament would have more weight.
