The government of Iran is upset because of a film made that accurately depicts the execution by stoning of a woman accused and convicted of adultery. This is the garden level hypocrisy of the religious.

According to Sky News:
The film's director, Cyrus Nowrasteh, has dedicated the screening to Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani currently facing execution by stoning or hanging in Iran for adultery.

Amnesty International UK director Kate Allen said: "The final scenes of The Stoning Of Soraya M are quite horrific and many viewers might want to turn away. I'd urge them not to.

"This is the cruel reality of execution by stoning; watch, be enraged, and take action to stop this inhumane practice.

"The case of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani has been taken up by people all over the world, who have protested and written letters to the Iranian authorities urging them to stop her execution by any method.

I just watched this film... Its very, very sad.

The stoning scene was pretty graphic but nothing like the real thing. I wasn't looking for it, but I ended up watching a anti-Muslim film which showed a real stoning... Of all the things I wish I had never seen because of the internet, this is on top of the list.

So.... Is there actually anything I can do about it? IDK... Doubt it... All I can say for sure is that these people have to live with what they have done. Ive only viewed a stoning on grainy streaming video and the image will probably haunt me for the rest of my life... How these people can live with themselves after torturing to death a family member or friend makes me sick.
