But a sentence of death, ADG?
It certainly was concerned. But when people choose to put themselves at risk there is little we can do. We try and ban base jumpers too but they're still determined to kill themselves.
I mean, these people-the Taliban, that is, are a bit hypocritical, aren't they?
They have no problem with their word spreading to our lands-by that, I mean they're far-out brand of Islam, but if you spread anything other but their word to their land, you die? Sounds like modern fascism to me.
I don't disagree, but should we break a law just because we don't agree with it? Particularly in a foreign country.
Yeah, maybe those folks knew the risks, but a nation that would sentence someone to death over such a thing smacks at uncivilized behavior in it's worst form, in my view.
And I agree. But the fact that they're an uncivilised bunch of zealot loons doesn't mean we should go in their country and flaunt their laws. It means we shouldn't. Afghanis who want to be christian did have the choice of leaving their country (boat leaves to Australia twice a week from Indonesia!!!).
Also the Christians could have appealed to the UN to take action against Afghanistan as well. Don't know what it would have achieved but I would never condone entering another country.
What about if someone from a country that condoned murder came into your country and murdered someone? Should they go unpunished? After all, where they come from murder is OK.... Very far fetched but hopefully you get the point.
However, that being said, i'm glad they are safe.
