Sounds kind of like the ridiculous argument by leftists that we should not criticize countries that torture and kill gays because we don’t have gay marriage. Leftists equate being against gay marriage and chopping peoples heads off/lighting people on fire as the same thing. Irish women have it real good compared to Middle Eastern women. No comparison.

The Norwegian woman was convicted of having sex outside marriage after she reported an alleged rape by a co-worker.

Comment thread:

  • Anyone else see the irony of us being outraged at religious beliefs enshrined in law in another country being barbaric to women when the same practice in our own country has allowed a gravely ill women to die while doctors stood idly by?
