This is not a stunt artist
At first glance, I thought for sure it was a stunt.. nope.. another execution in Iran. Let me add that Iran's record of executing minors is horrific and barbaric. Is Islam out of control? Is Iran going off the deep end? I feel less and less connected to the faith of my elders with each passing day. Explaining such issues to our four year old is going to be difficult. Later on of course.. Frankly, I don't care what faith he chooses in adulthood, no worries at all. A good clean heart means more than anything else.. But when I'm asked one day why Iranians and other like minded sick fucks kill their children for silly [and natural] hormonal crimes, the answer is most certainly NOT going to be "because G-d commands it". Fuck that.
