“Sharia: What’s Going On?” – competition winner!

“I would remind everyone that you don’t have to be a lawyer, a historian or even an Islamic scholar to have an opinion on sharia law. Some things are a simple matter of right and wrong. For example, treating men and women equally before the law is better than treating women as inferior beings; putting the interests of children first in family law matters is better than not putting their interests first; not stoning women to death for adultery is better than stoning women to death for adultery; and not hanging people for being gay is better than hanging people for being gay. It’s that simple. Children are capable of understanding this. Adults should be too.
