Sodomy "For the Sake of Islam"
« on: July 21, 2012, 10:19:52 AM »
Is this for real?  :o

I happen to be reading a thread in the news section which took me to the gatestone institute site. Not knowning much about this site I was looking around the page and right there on the side was this ...

http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/3158/islam-sodomy

The author of the article about claims being a hoax...

http://www.raymondibrahim.com/11985/sodomy-for-the-sake-of-islam

And a video of some guy talking about it in all seriousness...

Is this some April fools joke in July? Speechless if true.

The author is indeed real. Raymond Ibrahim is "a Middle East and Islam specialist, a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center and an Associate Fellow at the Middle East Forum. A widely published author, best known for The Al Qaeda Reader (Doubleday, 2007), he guest lectures at universities, including the National Defense Intelligence College, briefs governmental agencies, such as U.S. Strategic Command and the Defense Intelligence Agency, provides expert testimony for Islam-related lawsuits, and has testified before Congress regarding the conceptual failures that dominate American discourse concerning Islam and the worsening plight of Egypt's Christian Copts. Among other media, he has appeared on MSNBC, Fox News, C-SPAN, PBS, Reuters, Al-Jazeera, CBN, and NPR."

He believes that "to understand contemporary Islam, one must first understand Islamic history, doctrine, and epistemology."

Both quotes from http://www.raymondibrahim.com/about/

As someone who lived in a Muslim country for over 15 years, I assure you that the story that he tells is quite possible.

Hmm, and I thought all it took was grandma mimi's chili to have explosions come out of an anus.

I think they are just giving excuses to be perverted.

I know of women in the Muslim world who submit to sodomy (anal penetration) to remain "virgins."
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

LOL. Even if it was true, it's still just one opinion. I wouldn't be suprised if he was stoned to death or something due to opinions like that.

IDK about Post of the Month but this is definitely the Thread Title of the Month.
