That's understood. It's shocking.

I didn't ask. Thought it better not to.

LOL ! That's so ridiculous ! It's a bit like Kirk Douglas in 'Paths of Glory' where he played Colonel Dax, a commanding officer of a French army Division in WW1 that failed to advance into German shell fire.

The Generals accused the entire Division of cowardice and ordered Colonel Dax to choose 10 men from his division to be tried and executed. He reasoned like your friends village elders and chose 10 less intelligent and less able men for the court martial. They were shot by firing squad.

I wonder how the unfortunate innocent guy was killed. It was probably more gruesome.

I had a friend in Egypt, whose name came up for an honour killing.

A member of his family, a cousin, murdered somebody in the neighboring village and then ran away. The neighboring village wanted revenge. So the village elders, of both villages, all sat down to debate who should be killed in return for the murdered victim. My friends name was put forward, but it was decided my friend was too intelligent to be killed. They then chose somebody else, who wasn't as intelligent, to be kill.

These types of honour killings also exist, and this particular type of honour killing predates Islam. Regardless of the nature of the honour killing, it's all pretty effed up.

Y' can't beat a good wanking joke! Especially if it takes the piss out of some religion or other. Love it.
