I was just reading the latest about the Nigerian woman senteced to death by stoning:Nigertian Stoning Appeal Heard. Makes one appreciate the society we live in, despite all of its problems.

BTW, if anyone wants more details on this case, there is a great website: Amina Lawal

One of the things I find striking (besides the mere fact of a woman sentenced to stoning for no reason other than having an out-of-wedlock baby!) is that the man she named as the father would only have been convicted if he either confessed, or if there were 4 witnesses against him. As for her -- well, her baby is proof enough of her guilt!
