You know, tribal leaders in rural Pakistan said pretty much exactly the same thing, when laws prohibiting honour killings were imposed on them.

Good to see your maturity of thinking is at the same level.

Just use care when nailing cells together!

There, shallow draughts intoxicate the brain,
And drinking largely, sobers us again.
