Muslim extremists in Somalia are taking to the streets to address the latest threat to Islam under Sharia law: bras. The men from Al Shabaab have been whipping women found to be wearing the “deceptive” garments.
Women are complaining that they have been told to take off the garments and shake their breasts by Islamic gunmen.
At the same time, men without beards have been arrested. Some men have also been arrested for defending their sisters and wives from such public humiliation. This is likely to further delay the opening of a Victoria’s Secret in Mogadishu.
This is precisely why many of us had hoped that Dr. Samar would win the Nobel this year, here.

Arm Muslim women. Want to end Islam? Train and arm women in the Middle East. Teach them to stop raising sexually repressed psychotic sons. Help them escape their husbands.
This is sad and I googled other articles about this. Sickening, just sickening.

African Children Denounced As “Witches” By Christian Pastors
EKET, Nigeria — The nine-year-old boy lay on a bloodstained hospital sheet crawling with ants, staring blindly at the wall.
His family pastor had accused him of being a witch, and his father then tried to force acid down his throat as an exorcism. It spilled as he struggled, burning away his face and eyes. The emaciated boy barely had strength left to whisper the name of the church that had denounced him – Mount Zion Lighthouse.
A month later, he died.

I will never understand why the women of the world–those that are free to choose–cling to the belief of a paternalist “man-god” that has led to unconscionable worldwide abuse of women for millennia. Fundamentalist religions teach young girls early on that men are in charge and they must submit—as second-class humans—to men in all aspects of life and pursuits of happiness.
What women need is a Carrie Nation-like heroine campaigning *against* the mythological father-figure god that—thorough his ‘voice’ to men—runs, ruins, humiliates, and sometimes mutilates their womanhood and lives, thereby negating any real chances of actual equality with men in any culture where fundamentalistic religion abounds.
Is not the burqa a “deceptive” garment?
Oh my, this does have all the possibilities of abuse here in this country. While I do not agree wit it, who am I to say that the Sharia is wrong? Oh yeah, we have a constitution that is only selectively enforced. Hmm, makes me think of that ole saying that was said about 1861, that a house divided cannot stand. Gitmo anyone? It is easier to see the beam in my brothers eye than the mote in mine.
