Forced marriage is also bad, but hardly worse. Not even in the same ball park. I am well aware that Islam changes with community as do all religions. It's one of the main reasons they are all stupid. It's more likely none of them are right than any one of them being right.
That said, its irrelevant. This shit doesn't happen as far as I know in non Muslim countries. I mean bad shit happens here too, there was that Muslim who claimed he was working to bridge the Muslim community to American society here in new york, you know, until he cut off his wife's head when he thought she was cheating on him. But that is different than the local government ruling horrific junk like this.
And to be clear, there are horrific governments like that of Idi Amin. But those crimes were not the result of a culture or a religion, that was pure hunger for power. Same with hitler, who used religious context to pursue his rise to power (and before debating newbies like +Cavalier Zee
start calling Godwin, that's not a Godwin which is an equivocation fallacy). This is the other way around, Islamic culture defining the government. And it's not good. It's worse, it means that even if the present leader is removed, the policies remain.
I'm not saying all Muslims are horrible (however I still fail to see the outrage). I'm saying the worst of present day societies and governments are Muslim. I guess one of the religions have to be the worst. Too bad, Islam was quite enlightened while the Christians were running around chopping off heretics heads.
