    The horror of the sharia and Islamic culture is monstrous enough, but this media cover-up is truly horrible. It's bad enough that mindless followers of a religious culture engage in these atrocious mandates (it's their religion), but for non-believers (with the influence of a big media voice) to cover up for this brutal ideology is pure evil. These reporters are not believers; what's the excuse for their depraved inhumanity? The writer of this Puff Ho piece is one Sara Nelson, who is based in the UK. And if Nelson is not a devout Muslim (who would sanction such savagery) than...
