What am I ranting about? Haven't you heard yet? We are all sinners!!! Read about fatwa from the Egyption Cleric calling FB users sinners.
What next? Ban men because they have sperm, ban women ...wait...women have long been banned in form of suppression, ban coke because if wrongly pronounced it will sound like, "May I have two large 'cocks' please?", ban books because they can lead to intellectualism, (oh wait, they've already been doing that), ban laughing too hard because they may lead to hernia, ban dancing because it can lead to sex? The last statement comes with a story, courtesy of Art Harun; which to me, explains very well the process of thinking involved in the making of some fartwas...
"A Saudi couple, Ahmed and Layla, preparing for their wedding, meet with their Mullah for counseling.
The Mullah asks if they have any last questions before they leave.
Ahmed asks, "We realize it's tradition in Islam for men to dance with
men, and women to dance with women. But, at our wedding reception, we'd
like your permission to dance together."
"Absolutely not," says the Mullah. "It's immoral. Men and women always
"So after the ceremony I can't even dance with my own wife?"
"No," answered the Mullah, "It's forbidden in Islam."
"Well, okay," says Ahmed, "What about sex? Can we finally have sex?"
"Of course!" replies the Mullah, "Allah Akbar! (GOD is great) Sex is OK
within marriage, to have children!"
"What about different positions?" asks the man.
"Allah Akbar! Mafi Mushkila (no problem)," says the Mullah.
"Woman on top?" Ahmed asks.
"Sure," says the Mullah. "Allah Akbar. Go for it!"
"Sure! Allah Akbar!"
"On the kitchen table?"
"Yes, yes! Allah Akbar!"
"Can I do it with all my four wives together on rubber sheets with a bottle of hot oil, a couple of vibrators,leather harnesses, a bucket of honey and a porno video?"
"You may indeed.. Allah Akbar!"
"Can we do it standing up?"
"No, absolutely not!" says the Mullah."
"Why not?" asks the man.
"Because that could lead to dancing!"
What next to ban eh? How about we ban banning? That sounds more logical right?
"But say not - for any false thing that your tongues may put forth,- "This is lawful, and this is forbidden," so as to ascribe false things to Allah. For those who ascribe false things to Allah, will never prosper".
