Allah Giveth, Allah Taketh Away

Recent developments give us the freeing of thought-criminal Sayed Pervez Kambaksh from detention in Afghanistan alongside news of a Sudanese woman sentenced to fines and jail for having worn pants Allah wouldn't have picked out for her.

Capricious is the kindest word for Allah's justice, such as it is; it shows all the hallmarks of human justice, which is no coincidence, since Allah does not exist except as the projection of people. People can be capricious, small, petty, cruel, and outright obnoxiously stupid, especially if they won't lift their noses out of ancient books that reinforce these qualities.
