Nah, you just won't get your 72 virgins. This is pretty dumb, but you have to think, if enough people didn't want to live under tyranny like this, there would be a revolution

The usual punishment for a single drinking offence is 80 lashes, according to Iran's penal code which is based in Islamic sharia law.
What a completely ....ed up country and religion.

Quote:
Only recognized Christian minorities in Iran, such as the Armenians, are allowed to produce and consume alcohol, discreetly and behind closed doors in order not to offend Islamic sensibilities.
What you meant to say was, "so as to not demonstrate to everyone in the country how stupid your religion is".

I don't get Arab Muslim countries. Are they frustrated that they missed out on the European middle ages? Why don't they just have an inquisition and get it over with?

I'm sure people are terrified of the government in any country where revolutions happen, that's kind of the point. I feel bad for the dude, going to die because he likes to get his drink on, I was just thinking out loud. And even when you factor in the religious aspect, the church usually supported the ruling person in the old days, so I don't even know if it's the whole "Allah will .... me up if we ditch these assholes" mentality causing it. Maybe if we leave them alone long enough they WILL revolt, who knows.

Time will tell, but they have had a few thousand years to think about it, maybe it's well overdue. I think it's symbolic, as if rebelling was in insult to god, because it's sort of a disobedience. They are living by their "holy book" afterall.

Not that it makes it right, but to them, that's how they are.

...And it's ....in' stupid

AHHH MOTHERLAND!

Exactly... 72 extremely experienced housewives would do the trick nicely and possibly justify blowing yourself up. Virgins? Naaaaah....

Heavenly Virgin: Put the what in the where now?
Suicide bomber: ......... This blows (I swear to god people, pun NOT intended)

I pity people living in Iran. Something needs to be done about that ....hole.

too bad all the iranians dont drink booze, then we could wipe out the country in one fell swoop
I actually think that for the most part, the iranians seem like a decent people, its just their representatives and leaders that make the country come off as a bunch of crack pots(that they didnt even get to elect i dont think)
