Calling all Christians, Muslims, or Other Theists
Would like to have you answer the following question:

For starters, read this article:

http://www.examiner.com/article/saudi-ar...la_inbound

Next, let's assume that the person in question is in fact a witch, and they are about to give her capital punishment for it.

1. From your religious perspective, is it moral for the government to do so? Yes or no?
2. Second, if the government refused to act, would it also be moral for a group of christians or muslims to execute her themselves, based on your religion?

Feel free to elucidate after your answer, but please do answer yes or no for each question based on the facts stated above. Feel free to back up your additional claims with any holy literature quotes you feel merit consideration.

Don't sell yourself short Judge, you're an incredible slouch.

Martin Luther was the "father" of two movements - The Reformation and Nazism.

RE: Calling all Christians, Muslims, or Other Theists
1. This woman was "accused" of witchcraft in your article

2. She'd have to be caught in the act by two or more witnesses in the HB

3. The government of Israel was all but a theocracy, and could have executed her

4. The government is supposed to execute certain criminals, when they execute the innocent and give approval to criminals, the nation is in trouble

5. America and many other nations are in trouble

6. Christians and me are not a government together

PJ's account has been hacked by Mark Dreher!

No answers that fail to meet the criteria will be responded to, save for ridicule or comedic effect.

If you want to play, you've got to play by de rules. Yes or no and why please?

RE: Calling all Christians, Muslims, or Other Theists
This is why "spectral evidence" has been thrown out of court. Does anyone honestly believe that witches have actual magical power anymore? besides 700 club...and Islamic nations too apparently..and parts of africa. This article might even be bogus, that is not to say that things like this actually do happen.They have pictures of "extraterrestrials"that are clearly rocks on mars. http://www.examiner.com/article/extrater...a_inbound. They also have photos of angels tooSmile

Witches are commonly confused with devil worshippers, who have every bit as much as much power as prayer. If you believe in the latter, it's quite likely you believe in the former.

sure as in the witches sign a pact with the devil to get power, right? Do people actually worship satan? Pretty sure that the church of satan uses the name for theatrics, then again maybe they to have sects or..maybe there was one before that huh. Surprising you don't see any ancient art work from them. Might have been interesting.
Oops, sorry. Just noticed that was a wiccan fish. I know you're not devil worshipers far from it. All about nature. I had a friend who is wiccan. Before I just was saying thats what christians thought, good ol' religious propaganda.

1. Not for being a witch... Were non-biased, secular courts able to prove that she harmed somebody with witchcraft, then ofcause she should be punished accordingly... but erh, don´t think that´s going to happen anytime soon - I´m against the death penalty btw.
Short answer; no.

2. Nope.

Thanks for your answer Gaest. Apparently you are the only theist with the guts to take this on directly. Kudos to you.

Do you care to elucidate on the scriptural basis for your beliefs? Are you a Christian or Muslim?

First of all, you do realise this is an atheist forum, yeah?

Secondly, it's shari'a. And since you're questioning it, off with your head, too. Dodgy
