    So you are saying that you can justify anything if it is for religious reasons, no matter how heinous or absurd it might seem to us. Then we shouldn't look so harshly upon the terrorists who destroyed the World Trade Center and killed thousands of innocent people. The victims were guilty of the crime of infidelity to Allah.

    Spider, I think two different countries should not judge each other based on their own values. Americans always laugh at Cuba for example but now thanks to Michael Moore we know that poor Cubans are better off treated for illnesses there than poor Americans in America.

    I agree, but as SL said earlier in this thread, there are universal wrongdoings. Where to draw the line between a cultural idiosyncracy (women must cover their faces in public) and an universal evil (sacrificing children to the volcano god) is sometimes a difficult call.
