Iran suspends death by stoning

Wow. Way to go Iran. Way to show you're a 10th century nation now and have escaped those bloodthirsty ways of old school law by eliminating death by stoning. (No, pot-heads. Wrong kind of stoning.)
The country's penal code stipulates that before carrying out the punishment, men should be buried up to their waists and women up to their chests. The stones used must be large enough to cause the condemned pain, but not sufficient to kill immediately.
It is a penalty permissible under Islamic law (but not spelled out in the Koran) for crimes such as adultery, incest and prostitution. Sounds right up the alley of the religion of peace, eh?

Wow. Next you know they'll get rid of all the gays and figure out photoshop and forget about that whole Death to America/Death to Israel thing they have going on. (Oh, well, two outta three ain't bad, right Meatloaf?)
