Position:
Pro to the question "Should the Death Penalty Be Allowed?"
Reasoning:

“In cases where the rapist confesses the crime, then the penalty for zina (illegitimate sexual intercourse) is to be applied to him. If he is not married, then he is to be whipped 100 lashes. If he is married, then he is to be stoned to death.”
