A backwards world full of double standards!

So about a week ago we hear about a man in Califonia hanging from a Noose a dummy dressed to look like Palin & another made to look like McCain coming out of the chimney from flames. This is said to be a fun and games, just Halloween fun. (Get over it, it's funny stuff). this morning there are reports of two men in Kentucky hanging from a noose a dummy dressed to look like Obabma and are arrested It's being called a racial thing. So b/c Palin is white and Obama is black it makes one worse than the other? I think they are both UNACCEPTABLE! No one should be hung from a noose and seen as funny in any way. The symbol of a noose to me represents evil and bad things. Yes, by white men toward all blacks, but I don't think that makes it OK to hang Palin by it anymore than Obama. It all makes me sick to be honest! What is wrong with people?
Then you keep looking through the stories on the internet & you see the headline:
Pakistani Police Arrest Cleric Who Presided Over Kids' Wedding
In the article I read this & think are they for real?
Pakistan law forbids marriage below the age of 18, but some Muslim scholars say it is permissible if the bride and groom have reached puberty.
Do they really think that a 5 year old girl and a 7 year old boy have reached puberty? Then you read this:
The parents said the wedding had been arranged to end an eight-year feud between the two families, according to a report on Express News TV.
PEOPLE ARE CRAZY...How could you take your childs freedom for your selfish act of "ending an eight-year feud". How does this END a feud?
