Religion Bad

If you've ever had doubts that religion should be kept to the status of 'private hobby', let them end here.

For the modern businessperson who doesn't have time to click links, here's the summary: 20,000 people marched in Pakistan claiming that they should be allowed to rape women.

Take a second to unscrew your face from 'maximum horrified and disgusted'.

The existing law states that a woman has to produce four witnesses to the rape in order to press charges. The current president cleverly deduced that this means that, as long as a rapist resists the urge to invite a barbershop quartet to the event, he gets away with it. Further, he realised that that was not okay, a step that has apparently eluded the entire Pakistan government for the last twenty-seven years.

The protesters claim that this change violates Islamic law and all the usual bullshit, but here's the thing: words are infinite while actions are binary. Right now somebody is saying "Women shouldn't be raped" and you are either for that or against, whatever you say your motivations are. Astonishingly over twenty thousand people - equal to nearly half the population of the Cayman islands - come out to stand in the open and clearly identify themselves as people who think 'raping women is cool!'. Even worse, none of the police on the scene realised that this was the very moment that machine guns had been invented for, and thus lost the chance to increase the average intelligence of the world by five points with half an hour of sustained fire.
