Aren’t we lucky?

Aren't we lucky to be living in a country of civilized people?

The reason I’m saying this-is because of what I read on a Pakistani web site this morning. The site is Dawn.com. Every morning I go to different web sites just to read the news from different parts of the world.  It is unbelievable what I read about the suffering that’s inflicted amongst the citizens of some of those countries by people that are suppose to be civilized human beings. 

Here is an example of what is written on the site I mentioned:
“Barber has eyes, lips, tongue mutilated over illicit relationship Yousaf Khan, 32, was kidnaped by seven members of a landowning family who gouged his eyes with a sharp knife before slitting his ears, nose, lips and tongue.” 
Te same thing could happen here as long as we have this multicultural system and it goes on unchecked. True, if they are caught our laws would be applied but the deed would already have been done. What about the killings of the daughters done by the Afia family? Yes they are in jail but where are their daughters? May they rest in peace.

In a sense those that follow that Sharia Law have been brought up to believe in it and that’s there way of life and they immigrate to this country and some of them think that that those laws apply here. The thing with this honour killing and disfiguring of  people for life is truly disturbing. I can just imagine the suffering that goes with it. According to what I read, this law goes back to the time of Moses.

Its good to believe in some thing but to be a fanatic about it like killing, torturing and to disfigure some one because of your faith - I call that uncivilized.

The God that I was brought up to believe in, is for love and peace and not the torture or disfiguring of brothers and sisters as we all are according to the Bible that I read at times.

That’s it for today. Have a good day.
