Social Standards

I guess there are some things worse than American social conservatives. Namely Indian social conservatives:

A mother of two, Khushboo is recovering from a major controversy after she said there was nothing wrong with pre-marital sex as long as the girl protected herself against sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy.
Although she apologised for the comments made last year, conservative social and political groups have physically attacked her, including hurling eggs, sandals and tomatoes whenever she steps from her house.

Hurling eggs, sandals, and tomatoes? Simply for suggesting that pre-martial sex was ok? Wow. Kind of makes Fred Phelps’ “God hates fags” thing seem a little quaint.
