I’m not a big advocate of adultrey myself. If I were God, I’d probably make it wrong too. But what I’m really advocate of is intellectual honesty. How Taiwanese make such a mokery of the media is beyond me … especially when it comes to their ideas of what law and order are all about:
My favorite quotes from the article:
Ko appealed to the Taiwan Hight Court, arguing that, “the sex details and the psychological struggle of a woman embroiled in an extra-marital relationship were described in such an accurate and vivid way that the account cannot be imaginary.”
Is Ko admitting that the Taiwanese don’t have an imagination? What kind of court would even entertain such a legal argument?
Taiwan is one of the few democratic countries to list adultery as a crime. According to Article 239 of the Criminal Code, convicted adulterers may be sentenced to up to one-year jail term.
There should be a lot of men (at least) in jail in Taiwan. I dare say a lot of legislators, judges and butchers, bakers and candlestick makers.
Feminist groups have struggled to push for the decriminalization of adultery for more than a decade, but received a blow last year when the Council of Grand Justices ruled that “adultery is crime and Article 239 is in accord with the Constitution.”
Yea, like I’ve read the consitution here. It’s a worthless piece of sentimental nonsense. A schoolchild could write a more meaningfull document … like “Happy Mother’s Day Mommy”. As with all Taiwanese law, it is extremely strict, but with always a loophole clause at the end to justify any kind of result.
