Iran slammed for 'shocking' flogging of man convicted for drinking
alcohol as a teen

        Amnesty International is accusing Iran of demonstrating a
        "shocking disregard for basic humanity" after a man was
        publicly flogged following a conviction for consuming alcohol
        at a wedding he attended as a teenager a decade earlier.

The Iranian people are great people. But their government is run by a
bunch of fanatical, religious barbarians who are helping to assure
that Iran remains a pariah saddled with ever more crushing sanctions.
