CAN YOU CAST THE FIRST STONE?
This weekend I watched THE STONING OF SORAYA M. Have you seen it? If not, you must. A lot will say it is directed strictly toward the bad treatment of women in the Middle East. Some will say it is just depicting the religion of Islam. Most are appalled.
It is about those things but few see that it is also about us. It is about all of us around the world who allow ego, hatred, greed, jealousy, religious interpretation, politics and differences to rule our lives.
Stop a minute and think about women or men who have committed no crime but that you believe you hate enough to cast the first stone, then put their face on Soraya M. and see if your still feel that badly toward them.
