Pakistan Promotes Barbarism; Mullahs Allow Wife Beating

Happy Sunday? Really I shouldn't be surprised. The species Human is still extremely primitive in thought and action. These thoughts stood out the most in my mind.


"Do not break any bones or cut her skin or leave any marks," he added. "Do not hit her vindictively, but only for reminding her about her religious duties."

Religion is an invention of Humans. The duties to that religion are also inventions of Humans. Using violence to enforce compliance with the rules of any religion is primitive and barbaric. Violence may not be used to promote myth.

"The draft bill has a step-by-step guide on how to administer these beatings. If a wife disobeys her husband, according to the document, the husband should try to talk to her. If that doesn't work, he should sleep separately and only finally use violence as a last resort."

One person has no right to harm another. If a person has not touched another person in violence, they may not be touched with violence. Marriage does not bestow ownership of a person, and neither does it convey the right to visit harm to a spouse for non-compliance with the will of the other. It goes both ways too!

"The draft said beatings also should be administered to any woman who does not wear a hijab, gives money to other people without her husband's permission, and talks loudly so the neighbors can hear."

Again, "Marriage does not bestow ownership of a person, and neither does it convey the right to visit harm to a spouse for non-compliance with the will of the other."

Pakistan is far away from our lands. Their ideas about life are very different in a lot of ways. Some of their ideas are the same. Like the idea that primitive Humans figured out the nature of the universe long ago. Like the idea that all the answers to solving Human problems are within the pages of an ancient tome.

You Humans better get over it if you wish to live. The habit of inventing religion, then promoting it with a flood of blood has got to stop before it stops Humanity. That habit has already stopped the advancement of a large portion of the Humans on the planet. Time to reverse that by abandoning all myth. Embrace logic and reason.
