Remember, Islamophobia is supposed to be an irrational fear of Islam. Aside from the fact that any fear you might have of Islam is rational, you now have a new reason for that rational fear.
Egypt is preparing to legalize necrophilia.
Via the Daily Mail:
Egyptian husbands will soon be legally allowed to have sex with their dead wives – for up to six hours after their death.
The controversial new law is part of a raft of measures being introduced by the Islamist-dominated parliament.
It will also see the minimum age of marriage lowered to 14 and the ridding of women’s rights of getting education and employment.
Egypt’s National Council for Women is campaigning against the changes, saying that ‘marginalising and undermining the status of women would negatively affect the country’s human development’.
Dr Mervat al-Talawi, head of the NCW, wrote to the Egyptian People’s Assembly Speaker Dr Saad al-Katatni addressing her concerns.
Egyptian journalist Amro Abdul Samea reported in the al-Ahram newspaper that Talawi complained about the legislations which are being introduced under ‘alleged religious interpretations’.
Perhaps the Muslim Brotherhood and westerners can find common ground by agreeing that a male having sex with a female who has been deceased for seven hours is wrong.
