an egyptian cleric's controversial fatwa claiming that nudity during sexual intercourse invalidates a marriage has spaked a rift among islamic scholars. well, no shit. according to the religious edict issued by rashad hassan khalil, a former dean of al-azhar university's faculty of sharia (or islamic law to you and me), "being completely naked during the act of coitus annuls the marriage". this might be an indictment on the beauty of mid-eastern women. dont be looking for playboys "the women of al-azhar university" spread anythime soon. this has tearing up the airwaves in the mid-east and during a live televised debate, islamic scholar abdel muti dismissed the fatwa: "nothing is prohibited during marital sex, except of course sodomy" (a bad break for camels everywhere). for his part al-azhars fatwa committee chairman abdullah megawar (megawar......get it) argued that married couples could see each other naked but should not look at each others genitalia and suggested that they cover up with a blanket during sex. again i will say that we should leave the mid-east immediately, leaving behind computers, penthouse magazines, xboxes, pepsi and twinkies. let those kids get a taste of life and they wont give a shit about any fatwa. trust me if a kid can see claudia schiffer naked hes going to be staring at her genitalia and there wont be any sheet over him while he rubs one out. this does strike me as just what rick santorum and his friends are trying to acheive in this country. nothing represses women like some good old time religion and men.
well i have to run. rick santorum and i are deciding how to get all women to wear burkas.
