Why do many Islamic countries still stone people to death or behead them in public?

In some countries you can be executed for adultery, drinking alcohol, or practicing "witchcraft" or "sorcery". It's almost like they're stuck in medieval times.

    That is what happens when people accept as truth a book of fairy tales.

    Muhammad supposedly created a whole system of law. Some of it is revealed in the Quran, with additional laws sourced from the hadiths. The point is that Sharia is supposedly revealed by God Himself.

    Because they are still stuck in the times when Islam was made up by Muhammed.

    You have to learn that all people are different if you can't even admit that you will always be able to find fault with anyone and everyone.

    anytime you wish to discuss the death penalty........let's discuss Lawrence Singleton. 

    This was a man, who brutally attacked then vicious raped a 15 year  old victim,  and did so all night long.  When he was done with her, he hacked off her forearms, with an axe,  and then threw her in a ditch to die.....figuring it was the perfect crime, and he would never caught. 

    Except the courageous girl didn't die......

    she had to hold her stumps UP in the air, to keep all the blood from draining out.......and then got up and walked to find help.  She was spotted by two passing motorists who rushed her to the hospital, where she lived. 

    Long story short,  her description of her attacker,  led to the arrest of the pervert.   He was given 12 years in prison for rape.....the maximun sentence allowed by LAW in California , at that time.  

    12 lousy years.....but the brutal hammer attack,  multiple rapes,  and Hacking off her forearms, and leaving her for DEAD. 

    But wait..........this gets better..........

    he was PAROLED after just 8 years........for,  get this........"Good Behavior" while in  prison. 

    Yes, such an angel,  let's let him out early.......

    where he promptly moves to Florida,  and you'll never guess in a million years what he does next?

    Righttttttttt..............promptly  MURDERS his next victim.......because, hey, this one won't be able to testify against me in court, right? 

    Yeah, except neighbors heard the blood curdling screams and called the cops, and he's arrested again...........and sentenced to the DEATH penalty......

    which of course, comes with it's state required automatic appeals, and  hiring lawyers to look for legal loopholes and all those games. 

    And that dragged on long enough, for the man to finally just die of CANCER,  before his  DEATH sentence could be carried out----if it were ever to come to that, which was doubtful. 

    So while you may think stoning and beheading is barbaric.......

    so was letting that POS out of jail after only serving 8 of his pathetic lousy 12 years,  for the MONSTEROUS crimes he committed. 

    and that second woman is DEAD, because that POS wasn't given the death penalty he deserved and earned, for the FIRST  Horrendous crime he committed. 

    So why don't you look at your own  crappy justice system, before criticizing that of others.  Because had he done this in a Muslim country, he wouldn't have been around to be able to do it again.

    The wide majority of internet trolls spewing ethnocentric tripe and far right political rubbish have far more in common with fundamentalist Islamists than they do with moderates in Western countries. How many people does the United States execute annually? And some of the people sentenced to death were minors when they committed their crimes while others were mentally unfit to be eligible for capital punishment. I can see why you people are too cowardly to post using your own screen name.
