“Why do Islamic Theocracy's like Saudi Arabia and Islamic State cut the hands of off theives?!”
That’s why. That’s really it. Its as simple as that. The way you interpret it doesn’t matter, the context doesn’t matter, none of that matters when people are taking it LITERALLY. You cant change the way people think but you can change the texts. I could add what Muhammad did to thieves and what Sharia says but i really hope i don’t need to.
