The Scarlet Letter: Dropping the Stones

2012 September 4

Just recently I watched “The Stoning of Soraya M.,” the powerful (true) story of a woman stoned in Iran under the strict interpretations of Sharia law. Just after that I saw this piece shot by Matt Maxwell for last Sunday’s assembly at Golf Course Road.

    Thank you. My life’s dream is to see the church actually drop the stones…not only for all the wounded, but especially for those women who have been “caught in adultery.” Many times the men are forgiven but the women…not so much.

    Where can we see “The Stoning of Soraya M.?”

    Karise – That’s a wonderful dream!

    You can read about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Stoning_of_Soraya_M.

    It is available on Netflix Instant.

    The best 3 minutes and 14 seconds I’ve spent in a long time.
