Whose face?

The fundie blog Chester Street ("A Street filled with Conservative, Bible Reading, American Flag Waving, Neighbor Helping, Gun Owning, Animal Loving, Church Going, Regular People.") had a short post a short while ago, where they used the same picture that I posted earlier showing an Iranian woman preparing to be stoned, presumably for adultery.
The title was "The liberal relative rhetoric has a face". In itself, there's nothing wrong with the title or the post. The mindless relativism of a lot of western liberals is certainly worthy of criticism.

But it was not liberal relative rhetoric that got the woman there in the first place. What the picture really-really shows, is the face of illiberal religious rhetoric. You'll find it at the end of Chester Street.
