In the US at one time, stealing a horse was punishable by hanging-------because losing a horse by theft in the West was often a death sentence for the horse's owner. Believe it or not, the law fit the crime. A Biblical principle. This is the problem with judging 1000 year old laws with contemporary viewpoints. The law changed-----but the principles didn't-----& they shouldn't.
