Be it so. This burning of widows is your custom; prepare the funeral pile. But my nation has also a custom. When men burn women alive we hang them, and confiscate all their property. My carpenters shall therefore erect gibbets on which to hang all concerned when the widow is consumed. Let us all act according to national customs.

Charles James Napier

  1. Idiot liberals (I repeat myself again) in their cosmic ignorance and superstition would (if they knew of this) shriek that Napier was as evil as Columbus.
    .

    Lo, the noble savage . . .
    .
    I’m wondering if a high-level Hindu was empowered to cremate a wife with whom he had growth tired. Something the Synod Against the Family may want to consider.

  2. One wonders then what punishment is merited by the person in authority who has given weapons to the Muslim fanatics who immolate their women and children. Daniel chapter 4 would be a compassionate punishment for such a one and clearly not what he truly deserves. But God’s ways are not man’s.

  3. That spirit is no longer so alive and well in the United Kingdom. Back in the
    mid-1980’s, female genital mutilation (FGM) was specifically outlawed by
    parliament. The law was passed in response to the increasing numbers of
    immigrants from Muslim-majority former British colonies. However, in the
    years from 1985, when the law was passed, until 2014 there was not one
    indictment or prosecution under the anti-FGM law
    . Yet 2014 saw the
    release of a report estimating that 137,000 British girls had been subjected
    to FGM. It’s difficult not to conclude that politicians and police had decided
    it was too politically inconvenient to actually uphold the 1985 law.

  4. Absolutely, Mr. McClarey. And those 137,000 British girls would tell us that
    ignoring the lessons history would teach us can come at a heavy price.

  5. A future Clinton?
    It’s a sickening thought.
    She told the Vegas crowd that she is; “Still standing,” when the Benghazi investigation was brought up.

    I wonder about Ambassador Stevens inability to stand up, and Madame Secretary’s inability to send help when she could of.
    I’m just wondering.

    What would incompetence look like?
    I wonder.

    Your video is ready Hillary. The one demeaning Mohammed.
