Religion, say the religious, teaches moral behavior.
What was done to a little Saudi girl by her father, a Muslim imam, is so atrocious it is hard just to read about it.
From Creeping Sharia:
This imam doubted his 5-year old’s virginity [!] so he brutally raped, tortured and killed her! It’s unknown whom he suspected of taking the poor child’s virginity. …
Lamia al-Ghamdi was admitted to hospital on December 25, 2011 with multiple injuries, including a crushed skull, broken ribs and left arm, extensive bruising and burns… She died last October 22.
Fayhan al-Ghamdi, an Islamic preacher and regular guest on Muslim television networks, confessed to having used cables and a cane to inflict the injuries … They said the father had doubted Lamia’s virginity …
A social worker from the hospital where Lama was admitted, said the girl’s back was broken and that she had been raped “everywhere” … her “rectum had been torn open and the abuser had attempted to burn it closed. One of her fingernails [was] removed, [and]the side of her head was smashed” …
What must be done to punish a man who commits such a crime? His religious law says – nothing much.
[According to] Islamic laws … a father cannot be executed for murdering his children.
The imam father spent a short time in prison awaiting his trial. Then the judge ruled the prosecution could only seek blood money to be paid to the little girl’s mother, and that the time the defendant had served in prison “suffices as punishment”.
