"A would-be teen beauty queen was stoned to death after her participation in a Ukranian pageant reportedly infuriated local Muslim youths.
Katya Koren, 19, was targeted by three fellow teens who said her seventh-place finish in the beauty contest was a violation of Muslim laws, according to British newspaper reports.
One of the suspects, identified as 16-year-old Bihal Gaziev, told authorities that he had no regrets about the stoning because the dark-haired Koren "violated the laws of Sharia."
Forgive my lack of knowledge in this area, but does anyone know if there are laws of the land (?) that over ride "Sharia law"? Are there any laws where the Islam religion is dominant, that can protect against this sort of thing happening to women?
How do you feel about this? I've heard some say that these barbaric practices happen because of the religions youth, would you agree?

I understand that. You can do a history search on several religions( not just Christian or Islam) and find a not so pretty moments but that doesn't explain the connection with THIS article. But oh well I am going to eat pancakes with my husband. Most couples do date night we do date breakfast. Its cheaper hehe

Sure why not. I haven't seen it yet. And how wonderful of you to ASSume I was talking about the religion as a whole. I meant the GROUP of boys. If I meant to make a point about the Muslim part, I would have stated so.
