Indonesian Couple Caned for Breaking Sharia Law by Cuddling in Public
We've been warning you for ages about hyper-Islamic douchenuggets. They're the ones who want to kick freedom in its nuggets and send it on its way. Some people remain unconvinced, despite the pile of supporting evidence as voluminous as Michael Moore's paunch. Well, maybe those folks will finally get the picture after they learn of this Indonesian tale where a couple was caned for cuddling:
Teenage sweethearts were brutally caned in front of a baying crowd because they were caught cuddling.
Cheering locals took photos on their phones as the punishment was carried out in a public square in Banda Aceh in Indonesia.
Just in case you were thinking the public doesn't approve.
The unidentified girl, 19, was dressed with her hair covered with a white hijab and kept her head down as she was led to the platform.
Her boyfriend – who was also not identified – was then brought in front of the crowd wearing a white robe, known as a jubba.
He appeared to wince in pain as he was struck by a man whose face was covered with a mask.
Aceh is the only province in Muslim-majority Indonesia where local sharia courts are allowed to mete out justice.
Well, so much for the religion of peace.
I'll admit, some people go a little far with their public affection. I'd wager most of you have seen that couple who were one arm-rest short of dry-humping each other at the movie theater. Though, I don't know of anyone in the U-S-of-A who wants to chain them to a post and flog them with a firehose.
This is why separating church and state is generally a good idea. Otherwise, the po-po might have sent Elvis to gas chamber for the crime of gyrating his hips. Luckily for The King, his worst punishment was a sackful of strongly-worded letters.
You'd think lefties would speak out against atrocities like these, yet they're surprisingly mum. They're for separation of church and state, so long as we're talking Big Jeezy.
Islam is a progressive religion all right. Progressively bad. This Indonesian incident certainly proves it. Any religion hellbent on doing bodily harm to consenting cuddlers could use a reboot, a-s-a-f-p.
