This Offends Who Exactly?

So can we take from this that the town is not opposed to stoning women in public or having them circumcised?

The town council in Hérouxville amended its provocative immigrant code of conduct Monday night to remove certain rules.

Council adopted the changes, which include removing references to "no stoning of women in public" and "no female circumcision."

Councillors said the rules were open to misinterpretation by journalists who have flocked to the Mauricie town of 1,200 since it adopted the code of conduct in January.

How, exactly, do you misinterpret "no stoning of women in public"? Feminists, is it time for you to speak up yet?
