Cleric in sex sermon furore

Aljazeera.Net

"Australia's most senior Muslim cleric has suggested that women who do not wear headscarves are to blame for sexual assaults, comparing them to uncovered pieces of meat.

Sheikh Taj El-Din Hamid Hilaly, the mufti of Sydney's biggest mosque, said in a Ramadan sermon that sexual assaults might not happen if women wore a hijab and stayed at home.

Hilaly criticised women who 'sway suggestively', wear make-up and no hijab, or Islamic headscarf, for inviting sexual attack.

'If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside on the street, or in the garden or in the park, or in the back yard without a cover, and the cats come and eat it ... whose fault is it, the cats or the uncovered meat? The uncovered meat is the problem,' Hilaly told about 500 worshippers, according to a newspaper translation."

  • I seem to have missed the outraged reaction from the NOW crowd.

  • What am I to infer from this, Anotmo?

    Hmmmmm?

    Do you suppose there may be more to their agenda than just womens rights?

  • What ever happen to responsibility? This is a pure case of avoiding responsibility. Even the example used blames an inanimate object(the meat) for someone else's(cat) action. I don't see anyone jumping up and down over this whole thing.

  • H-H:

    Actually, I wonder if their agenda even includes women’s rights

    ablur:

    Ah yes, 'Responsibility'; what a quaint old fashioned notion. As I understand it, current Liberal political thinking has it that we have a right not to be responsible. I repeat: “Liberals hold us individually responsible for nothing but collectively to blame for everything.”

    And,.., let's see. Freedom of Speech means you can 'shout down' anyone who is speaking ideas with which you disagree, (if you disagree vehemently enough and if your ideas are Liberal).

    Those who believe morality is relative are morally superior to those who do not

    Sexual intercourse does not occur unless and until a male penis enters a female vagina. (Hasn’t our boy Bill thereby negated the whole issue of homosexuality? By that definition, a homosexual act can not be performed by homosexuals, unless they are heteo-homosexuals. Shouldn’t even call them homosexuals. I propose a new logically and politically correct term,…, let’s call them homoemotionals.) ((It is Bill and not homosexuals with whom I take issue here.))

    If you say what you believe to be true, what everybody else says and assures you is true and it turns out that it can not be verified in retrospect, then you alone lied.

    If you say something that is technically true but was deliberatly worded to make your audience believe you are saying something else which is patently not true, as in ‘there is no sexual…’, then you did not lie,…,deceived perhaps but not lied and somehow the former is quite okay.

    Oh the list goes on, but enough fun for now.

  • Oh, anotmo, you've got my head spinning now.

    In re. to NOW's agenda, I believe you are right to question whether their agenda includes women's rights. I think it did initially, but as with many organizations, after a period of time, the left takes over the organizations, their board, their administration and radicalizes their agenda.

    I have heard Tammy Bruce speak of this, I believe on the Dennis Prager show, using NOW as the example.

    And she knows of what she speaks. She was elected president of the Los Angeles chapter of NOW when she was 27 years old, the youngest ever to achieve that position.

    She spent seven years as president and 2 years on the board of NOW. I cannot remember if she quit or wheteher she was run out on a rail. But, she mobilized activists on a lot of issues like child care, health care, violence against women, economics, and domestic violence.

    But she speaks ill of them (NOW) now, (heh, heh) and I don't know what it is that they stand for now.
    I think, perhaps, chaos, and anarchy.
