Ignorance isn't bliss

This story is so appalling it can't be given an adequate frame. The stoning scene in The Life of Brian mocked ignorance and stupidity, but the joke seems hollow in the face of the real thing.

I can't bring myself to read this, guessing that it will be upsetting. What does that say about me?

I'm not sure, but I don't blame you. I was going to write something tying this in with the US elections, but any attempt to be topical seemed fatuous so I left it alone.

Digging her up to check if she was still alive?

Surely civilization is supposed to move us away from this sort of thing?

The truly tragic thing is that this poor girl's fate is probably not a one off!

Completely sickening!
