Your Say

To be fair, the Koran also permits husbands to give their wives one last beating.

There really is just SO MUCH that's wrong with islam... to even consider this is crazy.

Ann Barnhardt wrote a very eloquent smackdown of this practice. Is there anything she can't send up in glorious flames with that fabulous word power thingy of hers?

Actually, there's at least one translation that says Mohammed married one of his dead in-laws and had sex with her dead body, for the alleged purpose of sparing her time in Gehenna.

Apple of Islam doesn't fall far from the tree.

Oh goody, so now they have more energy left over for beheading people on video slowly with a rusty knife.

Surprisingly, this story was debunked. It's not true.

Yes, that's what the headline says. Which reports what Egyptian representatives in London say. And that's the source. Is it trustworthy? Who knows? It's Egyptian and Islamic.

The Egyptian embassy will also tell us that Coptic Christians are not persecuted, and that The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is not a perennial best-seller. I think some other, more reliable source is needed.

Despite the headline of the article, the text itself was less than categorical in refuting that this sickening change to the Egyptian law had been proposed. Whether such a proposal existed or not, at least some Egyptians seem to think that it did, and there was no denial of the Moroccan imam's fatwa permitting necrophilia.
