Saudi Rape Victim

That poor unfortunate Saudi rape victim was pardoned yesterday. I was going to post about it but couldn't think of anything to say that didn't involve a lot of swear words, happily Scientia Natura puts it perfectly
I never knew that a victim of a rape was worthy of punishment and had to be pardoned to avoid a barbaric sentence of 200 lashes. I also never knew that such a pardon would be hailed by the international community in the post-Enlightenment 21st century as a great achievement.

Welcome to the Dark Ages.
