Sharia as described here and generally elsewhere is a set of laws that aqre easily recognized in the West as Medieval.
There was a time that our legal code was just as awful. It is only in the wake of the enlightenment that we have progressively reshaped out own code to inform out own modern society. It is still a work in progress.
Yet Sharia law behaves as if these medieval ideas still have force and effect. Rather than shedding light on the details and opening them to open and free debate, Islamic leaders draw the curtain of religion over them to preserve their form.
I am sure that if one opens a debate on a detail, the apologists will arise in full force to claim that they did not mean that at all. Yet we have the Taliban.
This is Nonie again and once again she is not letting them get away with it.
