Ah, yes, another middle eastern religion winner. What we need more of is religious tolerance and respect. Seriously, this man’s beliefs are sacred and deserve respect. It deserves special treatment outside the law, just like your fairy tales.

A woman of Pakistani origins has been killed, and her daughter gravely injured in Italy following a family row over an arranged marriage earlier this month.

Some details?

The daughter, 20-year-old Nosheen Butt, was hospitalised with head injuries and a broken arm after her 19-year-old brother beat her with a stick in the courtyard of their building in Novi, near the northern city of Modena.

According to Modena prosecutors’ initial findings, the father Ahmad Khan Butt, a 53-year-old construction worker, threw his wife to the ground and beat her with a brick while the brother Umair attacked his sister. The father had been in Italy less that 10 years and was the owner of the local mosque.

Why? The girl dared to refuse an arranged marriage and her mother supported her. Bitches had it coming eh? Refusing to follow the man’s rules; decreed by the almighty himself.

You must ask yourself three questions:

  1. Why shouldn’t their sacred religious beliefs be given special treatment?
  2. Is special treatment for religion not what Christians are after, especially in the US?
  3. What gives you the right to decide which fairy tale gets special treatment and which one doesn’t?

Religion 1, sanity 0.
