Horrific and brutal punishment of children in Nigeria met with silence by "leadership" of U.S.

lashings for teen lesbians in nigeria

Six teenage "lesbians", aged 12!!!! to 17 have been sentenced to 90!!!!!!!! lashes of the cane, each, for a "shameful and abominable act" of "lesbianism".

These are children! I have a daughter who is almost twelve. This is horrific. ... and getting almost no media attention, anywhere (blogosphere or M$M).

Leaves one wondering how many Christian fundies in the US (or Australia for that matter) would like to see similar punishments meted out to lesbians/gays in their respective countries ..

I think that it would be perfectly reasonable to lynch anyone involved in the canings. Amputation would be a fair punishment, too.
