And the West is called sick, corrupt and decadent? OK, We are, but still…

Egypt’s Islamist-dominated parliament is set to introduce a law allowing husbands to have sex with their dead wives up to six hours after death. Critics fear it highlights a trend of increasingly anti-female legislation since the Arab Spring.

­The “farewell Intercourse” bill was inspired by a Fatwa issued by a Moroccan cleric last year. Zamzami Abdul Bar said that since the two would meet in Heaven again anyway, death shouldn’t get in the way of one last post-mortem marital romp.

Critics have slammed the law as “catastrophic.” Prominent journalist and TV host Jaber al-Qarmouty used his program on Tuesday to lash out at the proposed law.

Aw, crap. It’s crap. I guess the better story is how easily ‘reputable’ news outlets were pwnd into publishing it as fact.

    Inspite of knowing that this isn’t a correct news, its a cooked up story from UK’s Daily Mail, Websites continue to add in details. Even in this article, the author has taken sadistic pleasure in providing ugly details first and then adding a final line to a link to say it is untrue.

  2. Jeanne says:

    I would believe it. After all, we’re talking about religion.

  3. immovableobject says:

    The fact that so many believed the hoax is indicative of how effective anti-muslim propaganda has been. We are clearly being primed to accept another expensive war of aggression in the Middle East.

    How will we pay for it? By further slashing the social safety net, of course. U.S. laws are slowly being changed so that by the time our population wakes up to what has happened, and the domestic protests reach critical proportions, we will have a total surveillance state, and no effective due process. It seems like every week there is a new law or precedent for unchecked government intrusion. Upset citizens will be declared “terrorists” and disappeared. The privatized prisons and internment camps are ready and waiting.

    Have a nice day!

    How could anyone think this is real for one second.

    This blog is turning into the Granpa Simpson of the internet.

    Taxed Enough Already Dude …….FTW. Like always, you are on the money. Always enjoy your posts.

    I wonder if all these news outlets on the internet regurgitating trumped up stories is one way the government will use as an example of why they need to regulate the internet. False flag journalism of sorts maybe?

  8. Robart says:

    If it were true I could understand the need for such a law to protect a man from an honest mistake. In some cases a husband might not realize that the wife is dead. ( I dated a girl like that in high school.) After six hours the body would start smelling and it would no longer be an innocent mistake. It would just be kinky.

      Uh, dead bodies go cold pretty fast. Kind of hard not to notice that, not to mention the total lack of response.

    Pedro? Pedro is that you???? Clear, direct, on point===what gives?

    Its like some kind of religious conversion. What, did you have a vision of James Madison or John Locke?

    I’d wish you good fortune with your new persona, but if wishes could come true, I’d wish Unc Dave had saved the reveal for at least 24 hours.

    I hope my response would have been: “Really? Seems extreme, but it is religion after all. And really, it wasn’t about “love” for women at all ((here I have to correct Pedro the Champion of Four Hooved Lovers EveryWhere)), but rather to protect the cattle.

    Okay guys. It sure is a relief to be told the story is a fake however all of you God haters are still on the to be killed list. There is absolutely no doubt about that one.

    • Dallas says:

      A kill list? Just what kind of God do you subscribe to !

    • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

      Ha, ha. the hatred just oozes from every pore. I need to pay more attention……..or do I. Naaaa. Hardly matters exactly what kind of idget do-ill is. Figures though that an idget in politics would follow thru to all he does.

      Probably a vegan too?

    the Union of Egyptians in Europe Condemned the false reports published by British newspapers on the draft law allows for couples alleged lying with their wives after the death, saying that it has investigated the concerned authorities in Egypt and did not find any basis for this report , it is baseless in fact.

    The federation said in a statement Masrawy arrived on Monday, said the report published by my newspaper ‘Metro’ and ‘Daily Mirror’ in British, not based on accuracy and verification of the source of information, pointing out that the person who adopted by the authorship of the report is one of the followers of regime of former President, who claimed that one of the deputies belonging to the Islamic Movement submitted a draft law to parliament alleged, which was met with rejection and condemnation at all levels.

    The Union indicatyed that Islam prohibits the husband having sex with his wife when she has her menstrual period, and that Islam prohibits the husband from washing his wife’s body after her death as the marriage status is gone after death.

    The Union said that he did not find any bill of that nature after contacting the concerned authorities in Egypt, such as the National Center for Women, and defied the two newspapers to publish into British version of the bill alleged.

    He noted that the Union asked that newspapers rather should check their sources before publishing false news such as this that may hurt the feelings of other societies, and to preserve the credibility of the newspaper itself.

    The British newspapers have published a report on the progress of deputies in the Egyptian Parliament belonging to the Islamic bloc bill allows the husband having sex with his wife after her death, so that the Reuters news agency quoted the report, but they quickly removed it from its position.

    The moment a woman dies her man can not look at her. Never mind making intercourse with her. Some one wants just to make you believe stuff that has no basis. I advise you to research and read about Islam and you will be able to differentiate between what is true and what is just propaganda
