As a comparison, there is a story in the Bible where a man was about to fall over a clift. His wife reached over and caught hold of him and pulled him back to safety. The man directed his son to cut off the hand of the woman. His son looked at him in disbelief. What did she do wrong? She just saved your life. His father told him that God has commanded him to cut off the woman's hand. When you compare the fate of this innocent woman with the actions of a person who has their hand cut off in Islam for preying on other people's property, you will have to admit that the Islamic teaching is more reasonable and even today, if applied properly, can even solve the acute problems of the west.
Help me out here Fred. I have read the Scripture (Bible) many many times and am a constant studier of the Word. Never heard or seen the passage you speak of. Could you quote me chapter and verse(s) please? Let try and stay with the facts of our different faiths.
