But first lets go to the video tape:
Brampton Muslim cleric preaches adulterers, gays can benefit from being stoned to death
BY SIMON KENT ,TORONTO SUN
Death to sinners.
That is the religious message brought to you by YouTube. Homosexuals and adulterers, you’d better start start running because it’s directed at you.
Don’t believe me? Well, plenty of people watched Wednesday as Sheikh Faisal Hamid Abdur-Razak put his death by stoning show on the digital high road courtesy of the Internet.
A YouTube video featuring an insightful look at the ideas of the Brampton preacher who stated that “sinners,” as defined by his own interpretation of Islamic law, can benefit from a jolly good stoning was running all day until it was belatedly taken down.
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.
It would possibly be funny if it were in a Monty Python movie. Almost, but not quite. There is no joke to be had in a medieval form of punishment like stoning. Nor should it be condoned.
Alas, it might be more widely spread than most Canadians would believe.
