Religion of Compassion

I'm misting up.

Australian religious seer, Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali, has compassionately described rape victims thus:

If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside on the street, or in the garden or in the park, or in the backyard without a cover, and the cats come and eat it ... whose fault is it, the cats or the uncovered meat?

The uncovered meat is the problem


If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred

Via Tim Blair (yet again). It seems this follows another Australian Sheikh, Feiz Muhammad's gentle suggestion last year that rape victims deserve to be raped.

UPDATE - The Sheik apologised, saying he certainly didn't mean to offend anybody. What he really meant was it's OK to rape prostitutes.

UPDATE 2 - The Sheik apologised for his apology...(cont. p.94)

Any ideology or superstition like Islam that treats women with such cruel and disgusting contempt will take itself to the rubbish bin of history sooner rather than later. Lets help it on its way by everywhere fearlessly opposing and denouncing it as the fascist drivel that it is.

It's ok to rape prostitues though.
