Muslim Outrage Against Christians: 16-Year-Old Christian Girl Flogged

Muslim Outrage Against Christians: 16-Year-Old Christian Girl Flogged

By Robert Paul Reyes

A 16-year-old Christian girl from southern Sudan said Friday she was lashed 50 times for wearing a skirt deemed indecent by authorities in the north who enforce a strict version of Islamic law.

Silva Kashif said she was arrested by a plain-clothed policeman in a Khartoum market last week for wearing a skirt beneath the knee. She was convicted of offending public morality and received 50 lashes in the courtroom.

`I was treated like a criminal," Kashif said in a telephone interview. `I am confused what to wear. The trousers were an issue. My skirt was beneath the knee. What more can I do? I am Christian. My tribe and my customs permit me to dress like this.` " Read More

The tender mercies of Allah...

Reading a story like this makes me want to give up my free-thinking philosophy, and embrace the blood-drenched religion of Islam.

Followers of Islam aren`t content to be enslaved by their religion, they seek to bring everyone under the bondage of the religion of peace.

In most Muslim countries women are treated like chattel, and they risk being flogged if they aren`t covered up from head to toe.

In Sudan indecency laws aren`t supposed to be applied to non-Muslims, but the police don`t care if the rights of infidel dogs are violated.

It`s not just in Sudan where Muslims are seeking to bring non-Muslims under their dominion, Americans also need to be on guard against this militant religion.

Islamic countries are pushing for an international ban on "blasphemous" treatment of religious beliefs and symbols. President Obama, to his credit, has spoken out against this assault on freedom of speech. It`s an insidious movement in reaction to the cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammad that were published in Danish newspapers a few years ago.

I am not a Muslim, and I don`t have to genuflect before a prophet I consider a bloody tyrant and a pedophile. It will be a cool and breezy day in hell before I censor my words out of fear of offending the gods of political correctness and Muslim tyranny.
