    You are right. A friend of mine's DH got a job in Saudi Arabia and she went with him. She was back within six months after seeing a woman being stoned in the town square. This was over 10 years ago. It's still going on in many countries.

  • NO ONE should EVER try and force their morals or beliefe's on anyone else! That IS NOT being Godly nor like God when you punish someone for somthing You find to be morally wrong. The world has been going to hell in a handbasket for decades.
