  1. Are there any similar acts or protests happening in the United States? Or, if not, how can we organize one?

  2. God help Sakine Mohammadi Ashtiani. If she is guilty God will judge and sentence her on Judgement Day. Five years have passed and surely she has already suffered enough as have her children..

    Let he who is without sin cast the first stone! I guess there will be no takers as humankind is flawed and imperfect. Anyone taking part in a stoning is the worst kind of hypocrite.

    In any case, what kind of society would support stoning in the first place? A patriarchal, bullying one, which is so busy watching, judging and demonising humankind it has become the devil itself. What has happened to the human heart and personal morality? Where is compassion, love and forgiveness, which is the essence of God. Where is God in all this cruelty?

    Those passing a murderous sentence need to look into their own souls and examine their own behaviour. If they really believe they are carrying out God’s work, perhaps they need to look more closely at the source of this belief, examine thoroughly the origins.
