The kite runner

I just caught a few horrifying minutes of the film The Kite Runner. A women is stoned to death because she is guilty of adultery. This actually happens in parts of the world. Humanity is suspended in the name of a God. God is used as a tool to justify horrific, barbaric treatment of women. We should strive against this, we should not close our minds to it because our ignorance protects us - Amesty International is one way to take a stand against this type of human hatred. I believe that human kindness should transcend all other belief systems, particular when those beliefs justify the ill-treatment of others. I know that many people agree with me.
