Muslims Outdo the Crazy Religion Thing on This One!

Religion in Egypt gets crazier by the minute!

It perhaps loses something in the translation thing?????

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.

“This is unbelievable. It is a catastrophe to give the husband such a right! Has the Islamic trend reached that far? Is there really a draft law in this regard? Are there people thinking in this manner,” he lamented on air.

Egypt’s National Council for Women (NCW) also called on Parliament not to adopt this and other measures which they believe increasingly seek to roll back women’s rights.

The NTC further charges that "marginalizing and undermining the status of women would negatively affect the country's human development.”

Along with the rather grim “farewell Intercourse” draft law, parliament is also set to approve legislation that would allow girls as young as 14 to get married.

Lawmakers are also seeking to eliminate a reform implemented over a decade ago that allows women to end unhappy or abusive marriages without interference from their spouses.

Mitt Romney no different than Prime Minister Cameron in the Breeding Department?

Pure Bred like Mitt?

Looking at a bit of the BBC today and Parliamentary questions and answers and the growing Murdoch scandal that seems to have a special firewall here in America, the term “Posh Boys” got tossed around against the PM and Chancellor Osborne.

It is a label that may stick on the other side of the pond.

Well, as for Mitt and Ann, I think that maybe an upgrade in language or terms for the Doggy Breeding and Horsey breeding rich set might be a useful communications tool, to perhaps enliven rhetoric, in the upcoming boring election season against the “mutts” or 99% in 2012.

Austrian Warmblood
While few will see a pure breed Afghan hound in the image of Williard, I think that may Ann “Dish Pan Hands” Romney might have some roots or affinity with her Austrian Warmbloods, which I suspect she has many more of than Cadillacs.

Here are some glossaries of terms of the 1% Romney types and their hobby of linebreeding, both of themselves and their prize dogs and horses.

Did Mitt charges studs fees for Seamus along the way in order to pay for the gasoline on those trips.  That was the reason to drag the poor creature around on the car roof? One thing rich people are is cheap. Seamus was no doubt a pure breed. Just saying.
