Somali Taliban Stones Girl to Death for Adultery

I'd say something sarcastic about gender equity -- since the boy in the relationship got 100 lashes -- but really there's nothing funny about a girl in her early teens being murdered for having sex with someone who isn't her husband:

Al Shabaab has stoned a early teen girl to death for alleged (sin) adultery in Lower Shabelle region in southern Somalia, witnesses said on Wednesday. Hundreds of villagers can be seen standing around as the early teen girl is buried up to her waist in a four foot hole in the ground .... the crowd begins to throw rocks at her head and body, she collapses to the ground, covered in blood
There's a picture at the link if you can stomach it. But all liberals who think sharia is really no different than Western secular law ought to be forced to view it.
