Good old-fashioned brutality

Jordan's parliament overwhelmingly rejects ban on "honour killings", claiming that the ban would "encourage vice and destroy social values". Which is almost exactly the same words as used by Christian conservatives in America opposing anti-bullying laws for schools. Funny how religious reactionaries of all stripes will rally in the defense of thuggishness, because, in their world view, the alternative is far worse.

TO ALL YOU RELIGIOUS REACTIONARIES: Spirituality is What I think THE MESSAGE means to me. Religion is What YOU think THE MESSAGE means to me. Sorry for your ignorance.
