Warning: Very graphic!
Graphic Video of Fatal Stoning Shows Taliban’s Strength
abc News brings us this video and the news:
About 200 people listen to a Taliban mullah describe why a man and woman deserve to be killed. A few dozen spectators – people from the local community – start throwing rocks at the woman, who had already been placed in a 4-foot-deep hole. They throw with relish and yell, “Allah akbar.”
At one point a large rock strikes her head and she falls down, her burqa red with blood. After the rock throwing ends, a few people debate whether she should be shot. Eventually one of the spectators shoots her with an AK-47. She falls into the hole, out of sight. There is a short period of absolute silence, and then the spectators turn to each other and start talking.
Then the man is brought into the crowd and blindfolded with his own tunic. The same scene proceeds, but with larger rocks and more abandon. He cries as he is killed…
Compare the above barbaric actions to that of our Lord’s gracious response in John 7:53-8:11
Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”
