An Ontario Cleric has stated that Stoning is "good for the soul of the person being stoned" This might not come as such a shock if this cleric was speaking in an Islamic dictatorship such as Iran or Saudi Arabia where these types of sermons are the rule rather than exception, but for this to happen right here in Ontario fills me with shock and disgust! It also raises the question of why Canada is allowing Islamic extremists to preach MURDER right here on Canadian soil.
Will these Islamic extremists try to carry out the practice of stoning in Canada next???
